Early voting ballots mailed out
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - As elections are around the corner, requested early voting ballots are now being sent out. You can still request an early voting ballot until Oct. 23. Lincoln County Clerk Becky Rossell says to make sure to sign for it when you request a ballot.
“Many of you got the post cards in the mail that my office mailed out. There’s a form on our website, there’s a form on the Secretary of State’s office website. If nothing else write us a note with your name, address, tell us you’re requesting a ballot. If you want it mailed somewhere else put that on there and be sure to sign it for each person that is requesting a ballot,” said Rossell.
You can request a ballot, register to vote, and find more information on the courthouse’s website www.co.lincoln.ne.us.
“I’m encouraging people to go to our website, use that 2020 election button. A lot of info is on there so if you have questions that’s a good place to start,” said Rossell.
You can also request an early voting ballot using the informational cards mailed out from the courthouse. These cards can be filled out and dropped off in the drop box by the sheriffs' office or the courthouse.
On Oct. 5 the courthouse will have in person voting in the County Clerk’s office. Due to the pandemic they can only process two people at time so they ask for patience from the community.
In the next couple weeks a sample ballot will be available on their site and in their office. Rossell encourages the community to get registered if they haven’t already.
