The Nebraska Primary Election is quickly approaching on May 12.
Here’s how to request a mail ballot so you can vote in the safety of your own home!
All registered Nebraska Voters will be mailed a postcard inviting them to return the card if they want a ballot mailed to them. It is highly recommended that all citizens complete and return the early voting postcard application. If, for any reason, you don’t have the postcard from the election commission, you can use a plain piece of paper to request a vote by mail ballot. Simply write
the date of the election (primary election May 12; general election Nov. 3); print your name, date of birth, address, phone number or email, and political party; and sign the paper. Take a photo of the paper and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Primary election ballots will be mailed to the public beginning April 6, 2020. According to the election office, all mail-in ballots must arrive by the closing of the polls on Election Day, May 12, by 8 p.m. Remember to seal and sign the envelope with the voting ballot. One regular stamp is enough postage for your ballot. If you are unable to use a stamp, the United States Postal Service will still deliver your ballot to the election office. We believe voting by mail if possible is the safest way to ensure our elections proceed without causing any additional health issues for our communities.
