Press Release: Senator Megan Hunt Introduces Legislation to Increase Local Control in Election Administration
January 11th, 2019
Lincoln, NE— 1.11.19 — Today Senator Megan Hunt introduced LB163 to allow polling precincts in all Nebraska counties to administer their elections using a vote by mail standard. Currently, counties with populations greater than 10,000 do not have the option of conducting vote by mail elections. Senator Hunt’s proposed legislation would remove this population cap, expanding local control and allowing 26 Nebraska counties to assess their own needs and make decisions informed by local data.
