Sarpy County voters will have three new locations to return their ballots for the upcoming midterm election.
Sarpy County Election Commissioner Michelle Y. Andahl says the Election Commission installed secure, drive-up Early Ballot Drop Boxes in Bellevue, Papillion and Gretna. “Voters have been requesting more locations where early ballots could be returned. They wanted locations closer to where they live and work; and they wanted more options that didn’t rely on the mail system. Our hope is that the new Early Ballot Drop Boxes will make returning early ballots easier for everyone in Sarpy County."
The new drop boxes are located at:
- Sarpy County campus, 1248 Golden Gate Drive, Papillion
- Bellevue Public Library, 1003 Lincoln Road, Bellevue
- McKinney’s Food Center, 215 Enterprise Drive, Gretna
An existing drop box outside the Election Commission office, 501 Olson Drive, was moved onto an island in the office’s parking lot to make it more accessible.
The boxes will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the election cycle, and Election Commission employees will empty the boxes each day.
