What You Need To Know As You Head To The Polls

Tuesday, Nebraskans will head to the polls to vote in the primary election. Many issues and several incumbents are on the ticket and the results of the the primary will shed light on the state's next steps politically.

Some familiar faces will be on the ballot this election. Congressman Lee Terry and Matt Sakalosky are vying for a place on the November ballot; Terry is the six term incumbent.

Another familiar face is incumbent Gov. Dave Heineman and although many feel those two will take the ticket again, voters will have to curb their enthusiasm at the polls.

David Phipps of the Douglas County Election Commission says, "You can't do anything for your candidates, you can't do signs, you can't wear t-shirts, you can't have bumper stickers. You can't do anything for a candidate, petition signatures, anything like that within 200 feet of a polling place. And that's all spelled out in Nebraska law and so that's what we enforce on election day."

Polls are open from 8am-8pm in Douglas County. Be sure to check your areas' polling hours.
