2020 Election season kicks off across Nebraska

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Candidates looking to run for office in 2020 can officially file across Nebraska. The Hall County Election Commission received their first application on opening day Monday.

They're helping people file for positions on the School Boards, City Councils and Board of Supervisors across the county. Office workers are prepared with pamphlets and paperwork to answer any questions people may have from who they'll be representing to what they can expect out of the positions.

"Running for office can be kind of a big commitment, it can be," Tracy Overstreet, the Hall County Election Commissioner, said. So people may want to think about it, want to come in get information about the different offices and the process, go home and think about it a little bit. Talk with family about it. Talk with friends about it."

People running for re-election have until February 18th to file, new candidates have until the beginning of March.
