LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska voters in all 93 counties in the state will receive an early ballot request application, the start of the process for people looking to vote by mail in the upcoming General Election.

As of Wednesday, Secretary of State Bob Evnen has decided to mail an early ballot application to every registered voter in Nebraska.

“For those who have concerns about voting at the polls in November, an early ballot request for a mail-in ballot is a good option” Evnen said, “Anyone who wishes to vote early should request their ballot as soon as possible.”

  1. The first ballots will be mailed out September 28.
  2. The deadline to request an early ballot to be mailed to you is October 23.
  3. USPS recommendation for returning your early ballot by mail is October 27.
  4. The deadline for early voting in person in the County Clerk/Election Commissioner’s
    office is November 2.
  5. Voters who requested early ballots must return them to the County Clerk/Election
    Commissioner’s office by the close of the polls November 3.

Voters also have the option of going to the polls to vote. The polls will be open for the Presidential  Election, November 3. County officials and the Secretary of State are taking precautions to protect the safety of voters and poll workers. For information regarding early voting, visit the Secretary of State website.

Channel 8 Reporter Alexa Skonieski spoke with people around town asking if  they will be voting by mail this year or heading to the poll come November. The majority of the people she spoke with said they would be voting in-person at their polling location.

“I just feel like when I go vote, like I have done in every election since I was 18 years old, it just makes me feel like I’m doing my civic duty by actually going to the poll and doing it” one Nebraska resident said.
