Nearly 30,000 Nebraskans have opted to vote early in the Primary Election.
The first day to vote early by mail was April 4.
During the first week, the secretary of state’s office reports county election offices sent out 29,879 ballots. By the end of the first week 2,058 ballots were returned.
Of the ballots requested, 14,318 are for Republican races, 13,025 are for Democrats, 78 Libertarian ballots, and 2,458 nonpartisan ballots.
In-person, early voting begins today at county election offices. That is allowed through May 9, the day before the Primary Election.
The deadline for requesting an early voting ballot is May 4 at 4 p.m. Those applications need to be signed and faxed, emailed, or mailed to the appropriate county election office for processing.
Mailed ballots need to be received back at county election offices by the close of polls on May 10.
