LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Lancaster County Election Commission has begun mailing early ballots for the 2022 midterm election.

Election Commissioner Dave Shively said ballots that have already been requested should be received by the end of this week.

State law allows any registered voter to vote using an early ballot, but that ballot must be requested in writing.

Requests made via mail, fax or email will be honored through Friday, Oct. 28, at 6 p.m. In-person requests will be honored through Monday, Nov. 7 at 5 p.m. Agents assisting voters can request an early ballot up until 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Beginning Oct. 11, voters will also have the option to cast an early ballot in-person at the election office.

The request form for early ballots can be found on the Lancaster County website.

Shively encourages anyone with early voting questions to call the election office at 402-441-7311.
