Early nominations for the 2021 common election in Omaha
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Early voting motions for this year’s primary and general election in Omaha have been mailed.
According to a statement from the Douglas County Electoral Commission on Wednesday, registered voters who live within the city limits and are on the county’s Early Vote Requests list should receive their ballot requests in the mail soon. The motions are postcards printed on green cardboard and should be in mailboxes by early February, according to Douglas County Electoral Commissioner Brian W. Kruse.
“This card helps my office to process requests for postal voting more efficiently. We are pleased that the voters are using the card and, if possible, returning it to a ballot box,” said Kruse.
Voters must complete and sign the application before sending it back to the Electoral Commission by post, email or fax. You can also drop application cards in official drop boxes across the county. Postage is not required for returning the cards by post.
If you have not requested an early vote and wish to do so, the deadline for submitting your written request to the Electoral Commission is March 26th for the April 6th primaries and April 30th for the May 11th general election.
The ballot papers will be sent out from March 22nd.
Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that other election papers had recently been sent out. 6 News regrets the mistake.
