OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Nebraska’s recent election was one of the safest in the nation.
And Tuesday’s election shows no evidence of an impact on that trend.
The secretary of state of each state is in charge of elections.
In the past two years, much of the controversy around the country has been over early voting ballots and voting machines.
Courts and election authorities across the country have repeatedly rejected the idea that the 2020 election was rigged.
There is no doubt that in 2020 the numbers for voting by mail and depositing ballots in safe boxes were historic.
Experts say the increase in postal voting is due to the pandemic.
When it comes to election security these days, states have doubled down on their protocols to assure voters it’s a fair election.
“Nebraskas can be confident that today’s election will be fair,” he said Nebraska Secretary of State Robert Evnen. “They will be safe. Every valid ballot will be counted.”
6 News asked if Evnen is concerned about what other secretaries of state might do if elected if they still believe Donald Trump is president.
“I’m concerned about the state of Nebraska. So how other states approach it and how the voters there approach it is up to other states. I’m focused on the state of Nebraska.”

The incumbent survived a crowded Republican primary but is unopposed in Tuesday’s election.
