(Douglas County, NE) -- Early voting ballot applications for the 2022 Statewide Gubernatorial Primary Election will be sent to voters in early February.
The Douglas County Election Commission says recipients will be registered voters who signed up to be included on the Douglas County Early Voting Request List. The Election Commission says the postcard-size mail pieces are printed on green cardstock. Voters must complete and sign the application portion of the mailing and return it to the Election Commission office to receive a ballot by mail. Ballots will not be automatically sent to voters who receive the postcard mailing or who requested a by-mail ballot for previous elections. Applications may be returned via official ballot drop box, postal mail, email or fax.
“Voters should expect to receive their cards by mid-February,” explained Brian W. Kruse, Douglas County Election Commissioner. “This card assists my office in processing applications for by-mail ballots more efficiently, and we appreciate voters’ use of the card when possible,” added Kruse.
Voters who do not receive an early voting application postcard may request a by-mail ballot by submitting a request in writing, accompanied by their signature. At the same time they request their ballot, voters may sign up to be included on the Early Voting Request List for future elections. Details may be found here or by calling (402) 444-VOTE (8683). Ballot requests may not be accepted via telephone.
