Races in Nebraska are bringing voters out in record-setting fashion

Posted:

The signs of high voter turnout is evident when you walk into polling locations in Norfolk and across Nebraska Tuesday.

To wait 15 minutes or longer to get your ballot has become common place, which is pleasing to both the candidates and election officials.

Madison County Clerk Nancy Scheer says turnout could be unprecedented.

She says she has been keeping voting records for thirty years and has never seen this high of a percentage of voters.

With that in mind, Scheer is predicting a record voter turnout in Madison County of more than 73 percent.

That is slightly higher than the state prediction of 71 percent. Scheeer says there has also been a new record for early ballots cast.

Madison County saw over 2,500 early ballots this year.
