Primary Election voting information

The voting office here in Lincoln is closed and Monday was your last day to register. A lot of people have taken advantage of early voting, about 14,000 people so far which is up from Lancaster county's last primary.

The voting office was fairly steady earlier Monday, with a combination of people both at the polls and registering. Election commissioner David Shively says some of the issues on the ballot might be playing a role in the turnout.

If you want to get an absentee ballot, you have to do that by Wednesday at 4pm, and remember if you mail it back in you'll want to do it by Friday or at the very latest Saturday.

And you can always drop it off at the office on 601 north 46th street through next Tuesday.

If you want to vote in person, you can go to the election office up until Monday, then on Tuesday you have to vote at the area that corresponds with where you live.
