Early ballots for Tuesday’s election are coming in at a steady pace at Nebraska’s most populated county.
Douglas County Election Commissioner Brian Kruse says about 60% of the more than 76,000 early ballots requested have been returned to his office. He says those returned are evenly split among Democratic and Republican voters.
There is a significant increase in the number of registered voters in the county.
Kruse says, “We have about 7,300 more registered voters in Douglas County than in the 2016 Presidential. The vast majority of those, over 5,000 are Non-Partisan. Democrats have gained about 1,700 and Republicans are actually down just slightly by about 700.”
There are more than 357,000 registered voters in Douglas County.
