The Sarpy County Election Commission is committed to voters and making sure their participation in the coming election is convenient and easy.
Polling places will be open on Election Day (May 12) for voters to cast their votes. For voters who would prefer to vote early from the comfort of their home, the Election Commission is taking steps to ensure that requesting and receiving an early ballot is a simple and convenient process.
The week of March 16, the Sarpy County Election Commission will be mailing Early Voting Ballot Applications to all 114,000 eligible registered voters in Sarpy County. Voters will be able to fill out the application, mail it back and receive a ballot by mail after April 6, when Nebraska law allows for early voting ballots to begin being mailed.
“With current events in mind, I want to ensure that every voter can cast their ballot in the way that is best for them. I want voters to be aware of all voting options available to them, including voting at polling places, voting early in our office, or voting by mail from the comfort of their home,” said Michelle Andahl, Sarpy County Election Commissioner.
Voters with questions can call (402) 593-2167.
