Lines Form For Last Early Voting Day

It’s the last day to vote early and many people in Douglas County wanted to take advantage. A line wrapped around the election commission office for most of the day.

Maureen Keeny said, “I didn’t think there would be this many people here, but there is. There’s a lot of people here.”

Douglas County Election Commissioner Dave Phipps says it’s been a record breaking year for early voting.

Voters like Jane Tuttle say it’s convenient. “I thought I would avoid the crowds and vote early,” said Tuttle.

The Election Commission in Pottawatomie and Sarpy Counties were also busy today.

"It's an exciting day because it's all in preparation for the election, “ said Linda Nelson. Nelson is not only a voter; she’s been helping to drive others to the polls.

“If someone has a need we’ll be there to help them out,” said Nelson. Nelson drove Betsy Ramsy in the morning. Now that Ramsy has cast her vote, she’s ready to hear the results tomorrow.

“Oh yes! I am going to be watching the TV and getting the results.”

Election officials with Pottawatomie and Sarpy Counties say they too have broke early voting records this election.
