Where should I send my completed application?


Completed ballots may be submitted in person, by mail, fax or email to your county election office: https://sos.nebraska.gov/elections/election-officials-contact-information




When is the application due?


Technically, applications must be received 11 days before Election Day. (October 23, 2020) To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you send it immediately and no later than the middle of October. New voters must register by October 16, 2020.




I have a question that wasn't answered here.


Please call the county election office where you live. They are in charge of elections and should be able to help you. https://sos.nebraska.gov/elections/election-officials-contact-information





Step 2: Vote-by-Mail

When do I have to mail or drop off my completed ballot?


Technically, ballots must be received by Election Day. (November 3, 2020) To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you return your voted ballot as soon as it arrives and no later than the middle of October. You may also drop your ballot at your local election office. It's a good idea to call and check first. https://sos.nebraska.gov/elections/election-officials-contact-information




Does it require a stamp? Two?


Read the outside of the envelope to see if additional postage may be required. The US Postal service will deliver any ballot, regardless of whether or not it has the correct postage, or any at all. They will charge the local election office for any unpaid postage. https://time.com/4547550/absentee-mail-ballot-postage-stamp-postal-service-usps/




Can my ballot be dropped off at a polling site or dedicated drop box?


Each county may establish their own drop boxes. Call your local election office to find out locations and availability. However, you may not drop your ballot at a polling site.




Is there any way to check if my ballot was received?
