LINCOLN, Neb. (COLOGNE) – Polling locations in nine upcoming Lincoln primary and general election districts are changing to make it more convenient for voters.
Lancaster County Election Commissioner Todd Wiltgen announced Thursday the changes at nine polling locations that will affect about 9,000 of the 172,000 voters in the Lincoln area. Wiltgen said that with 198 precincts in Lancaster County, they are constantly evaluating polling locations to make sure they have the most suitable locations.
Wiltgen said Madonna Proactive, The Legacy and Emerald Nursing & Rehab Brookside were voting locations before the COVID-19 pandemic and were temporarily relocated because they accommodate vulnerable populations.
Affected voters will be notified of the recent changes by mail and should expect to receive forms in the coming days, according to Wiltgen.
