Several items are prohibited at polling places as Lincoln votes this Tuesday

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Lincoln city general election is finally here, following countless TV ads, flyers and billboards.

Polling locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. this Tuesday.  Voters should go to the same place they went for the primary election.

If you don’t remember where that was, you can find your polling location here.

Voters will be deciding Lincoln’s next mayor, as well as members of the city council, school board and the airport authority.

Lancaster County Election Commissioner Todd Wiltgen is also sharing some reminders to make sure this process goes as smoothly as possible.

Campaigning is prohibited within 200 feet of a polling place.

That includes items promoting candidates like buttons, stickers and clothing.

You’re asked to silence your cellphone and other electronics to avoid distracting others.

Selfies are allowed, but photos should only be taken of your own ballot.  Respect the poll workers.

And anyone who still has an early voting ballot should leave it in the drop box on the north side of the election office, by 8 p.m.

That’s at 601 N. 46th St.
