(Douglas County, NE) -- The Douglas County Election Commissioner's Office will be sending out Polling Place Information postcards to all Douglas County voters who are registered at their current address.
Election Commissioner Brian W. Kruse says this is the final step of the 2021 redistricting process that followed the 2020 decennial census. Kruse says due to redistricting, some voters will experience changes in their polling place and/or one or more voting districts while other voters will have few or no changes. Each voter’s situation depends upon their address and where the new boundary lines were drawn. In total, approximately 40 percent of voters will experience a change in their polling places throughout Douglas County.
“I encourage all voters to review their new Polling Place Information card and retain it for future reference,” stated Kruse. “It’s important voters are aware of the information the card contains, even those who prefer to vote early rather than vote at their polling place.”
Polling Place Information postcards are printed on yellow cardstock and provide a voter’s polling place and political districts. Kruse encourages voters to watch for their Polling Place Information card in the mail after March 21 and review it thoroughly to learn information that may have changed due to redistricting.
Voters may also verify their polling place and political districts by visiting the Douglas County Election Commission website here and entering their address information in the gray “Find Your Voting Information” box on the left side of the home page. Voters may also call (402) 444-VOTE (8683) to confirm their polling place. Voters with questions about their Polling Place Information card may contact the Douglas County Election Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 444-VOTE (8683).
