The Sarpy County Election Commission is committed to voters and making sure their participation in the coming Nov. 3 election is convenient and easy.
Polling places will be open on Election Day (Nov. 3) for voters to cast their ballots. 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 Aug. 3, the Sarpy County Election Commission will be mailing Early Voting Ballot Applications to all eligible registered voters at their correct address in Sarpy County. The applications will be printed on salmon colored cardstock. Voters who fill out the application and return it to the Election Commission will receive a ballot by mail. The deadline to submit the application is 6 p.m. on Oct. 23.
Voters can return the applications in a number of ways:
- Mail: Sarpy County Election Commission, 501 Olson Drive, Suite 4, Papillion NE 68046
- Fax: 402-593-5770
- Email or text: Send a photo or scan of the signed application to [email protected]
- Drop box: The Sarpy County Election Commission has four secure drop boxes located across
the county that are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No postage is necessary when using the drop boxes:
- 501 Olson Drive, Papillion (Election Commission parking lot)

- 1003 Lincoln Rd., Bellevue (Bellevue Public Library parking lot)

The Election Commission will begin mailing ballots on Sept. 28, 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.
