Lancaster Election Commissioner hosts last voter registration event before midterms
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — With the November 8 statewide general election quickly approaching time is running out to register to vote.
As part of a special registration drive, the Lancaster County Election Commissioner has set up shop at establishments across town.
In the past two weeks, there have been booths at local Hy-vee locations, with Sunday’s event being at the north 27th street location.
An election commission registrar deputy, Mikki Russ, said voting gets your voice out
“It’s very important to be involved with the political process so that the things that you need as an individual or even a company can be dealt with in a good way so you have an outcome that is favorable,” said Russ.
The booth was available to the public from 10 a.m to noon.
“We’re hoping to get people to register to vote,” said Russ. “It’s super easy. We’re standing by and if you have registered to vote you can always go to the Lancaster County Office to cast your ballot early.”
The deputies recommend reaching out to the commissioner’s office or visiting their website with any questions or concerns.
“It never hurts to look online to make sure your registration status is still a-go,” said Russ
She warns that being idle is a dangerous situation when it comes to elections.
“If you don’t get involved then the outcome is not in your hands anymore,” said Russ.
Online and mailing registration deadlines are set for Oct. 21.
You can still register in person at the Lancaster Commissioner’s Office till Oct. 28.
