LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — It’s election day here in Lincoln, although many voters have already submitted their votes early, the polls are open on Tuesday.
“I think they need a little change,” said Lewis Ostrand, a Lincoln resident, about the city council.

“It’s a little bit out of balance. Now I think they need some change; the new people need to be on board.”

Voters like Lewis are participating in the primary to see a change in the city council. With three incumbents and many challengers, some say that change could happen.

A local woman who is dropping off her mail-in ballot today says she’s voting because she wants property taxes to stop going up.

“I’d really like to see taxes not continue to go up on property taxes because that’s been going up hand over fist like crazy,” said Karen De Jabet, a Lincoln voter. “So, I’d love to see that stop.”

Polls are open until 8 pm. If you vote in person, wearing a mask and social distancing are encouraged.
