Voter registration deadlines fast approaching

Secretary of State John Gale says deadlines are fast approaching for Nebraska citizens who want to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election.

Gale outlined deadlines regarding voter registration for the November election:

--Mail-in voter registrations must be postmarked by Oct. 19. Registrations close at motor vehicle offices and state agencies on Oct. 19.

--In-person voter registration at county election offices ends at 6 p.m. Oct. 26.

Gale reminded people to update their voter registration if they have moved within a county, since this will save them time when they go to the polls.

The secretary of state's website (www.sos.ne.gov) provides a voter registration form, addresses and phone numbers for county election offices, and a look-up tool that allows voters to verify their registration status.
