Contested races in Tuesday Primary Election in Nebraska

(KLZA)-- Tuesday is Primary Election Day in Nebraska. Polls will be open from 8 a-m until 8 p.m.

Voters need to remember that a state law passed in 2023 means voters must present a valid ID, which includes your name and a photo before you cast your vote.

Legal ID's can include: a drivers license; a state identification care; a Nebraska college ID from a public or private school; a Nebraska political subdivision ID; a U.S. Passport; a military ID or a tribal ID, or a face sheet from a hospital or assisted living facility.

If you don't have an ID with you, Richardson County poll workers will ask that you go home and get your identification. Ballots can be cast if you don't have an ID, but your vote will be placed in a special ballot box and you will have to fill out an affidavit and them present an ID at the County Clerk's Office by Tuesday, May 21, before the ballot is counted.
