Election Commissioner Reminds Early/Absentee Voters
to Return their Ballots Promptly

Lincoln -- Lancaster County Election Commissioner David Shively is reminding early/absentee voters who have not returned their ballots for the May 5th Lincoln City General Election that the ballots must be received in his office no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, May 5th.

Shively recommends that voters mail their ballots early and not to wait until the last minute. He suggests mailing ballots no later than Friday, May 1st in order to allow plenty of time for the U.S. Postal service to process the mail.

Early vote ballots can also be returned to the Lancaster County Election Commissioner's Office, 601 North 46th Street during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.). In addition, ballots may dropped off at the Election Commissioner's Official Drop Box on the north side of the Election Commissioner's Building which is available twenty-four hours a day.

Shively reminded early/absentee voters that Nebraska law does not allow for early/absentee ballots to be returned to a voter's polling location on Election Day.

For questions regarding early/absentee voting, please contact the election office at 441-7311.
