Hall County Election Commissioner updates voters on deadlines
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - On November 3, registered voters will be able to voice their opinion by getting out and voting in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Voters in Hall County have the opportunity to vote on a number of other items outside of the presidential race, including state initiatives, constitutional amendments, as well as Congressional and local positions.
Hall County Election Commissioner Tracy Overstreet wants to make sure people who can register to vote are registered, and that they vote come election time.
“Hall County has over 34,000 voters registered currently, which is the most we’ve ever had and is very encouraging. We still need more to get registered and then to get out and vote when the time comes,” said Overstreet
There are three methods of voting: in person at your designated polling site, mail-in ballots or early absentee ballots.
For mail-in voters Overstreet stressed that applications must be filled out and returned by October 23. Overstreet said once the voter receives the ballot it should be filled out and sent back in the mail at least 5-7 days before the Nov. 3rd election.
“You can view your ballot and see if it’s been processed or not by going to the Hall County Election Commission website,” she said.
Overstreet said there is still time to register to vote. The deadline for registering online is October 16, and in-person registration is October 23.
