In North Platte only two polling places are open. At the D & N event center or the Berean Church. Voters say they think it is important to make their voice heard.

Voter Amanda Bonney says she wants to show her kids the importance of taking action to improve the future.

"I like to have my kids with me cause I want them to see the importance of trying to make the future better and you can't just talk about it you gotta take action," said Bonney, "If you have an opinion and you don't vote, well it's kind of invalid because you didn't do something to press the matter further than just talking about it."

Voter, Scott Ambrose says he prefers to vote at the polls.

"I've always been a go to the ballot and vote. It's our civic duty, it's our right and it's our voice so get out and vote," said Ambrose.

For many of the poll workers this is their first time. Heather Snyder found out as late as the night before that she would be filling in.

"Got up at 6 this morning and started at 7. She did some quick training for us and taught us a little bit what to do so it's been pretty smooth," said Snyder.

The National Guard helped voters when needed and sanitized the polls. They say they are happy to help create a safe and fair election. Voting will conclude at 8 pm. For results there is going to be an election result button on the county website.
