Thirty day in-person early voting period passed

Lawmakers passed a bill April 18 that shortens the in-person early voting period in Nebraska.

Under LB271, introduced by Omaha Sen. Scott Lautenbaugh, any registered voter could appear in person before the election commissioner or county clerk to obtain his or her ballot not more than 30 days prior to an election.

Current law provides that ballots for in-person early voting will be available at least 35 days prior to an election.

LB271 passed on a vote of 33–8.
