Scotts Bluff County discuss primary votes turnout

By  | 

GERING, Neb. As is typical of most primary elections, interest in the races has been muted compared to general elections.

According to the Scotts Bluff County Administration, the numbers of voters were not as high as they expected.

They are reviewing their election process to see what they will keep and change for the next election; aiming to do whatever it takes to receive more votes.

"The ones who did vote I say thank you for exercising your right and privilege,” said Vera Dulaney, Scotts Bluff Co. Election Commissioner. “The ones that didn't, I am a little disappointed in you."

Even though the voting numbers weren’t as high, Dulaney says she will use the same approach next year; hoping the numbers will increase.
