Voters can request early voting ballots through mail
Lincoln County's Election Commissioner, Becky Rossell, is reminding voters If you did not receive your early voting postcard application in the mail you can request a ballot in two other ways. She wants people to print off the form on the county or Secretary of State's webpage, or write a letter and mail them to the Courthouse. Voters can also write a letter and mail it to her office.
She outlines these specific steps:
1. Go to the Lincoln County Website at www.co.lincoln.ne.us – Click on the 2020 Election Button on the Home page – Click on Early Voting Application – Print off the form – Fill it out and be sure to sign it – We MUST have a signature to process it! Either mail it back (be sure to add postage) or put it in the drop box located at the North end of the Sheriff’s Office parking lot near the Children’s Museum. Please do not go into the Sheriff’s Office building. A form is also available on the Nebraska Secretary of State website.
2. Write us a letter. Tell us you are requesting an early voting ballot. Be sure to include your full name, residence address, and mailing address (only if different than your residence address). Place your signature on the letter. We must have a signature for every person that is requesting a ballot. Either mail it to us (be sure to add postage) or return to the County drop box.
The postmark deadline for a ballot through the mail is April 24.
