By Mail

  • The voter can send an Early Voting Ballot Application to the Election Commission requesting a ballot be mailed to them.
  • Voters can have a ballot sent directly to them in the mail, either to their home address or to another address if they are away from home.
  • The voter must submit an Early Voting Ballot Application to the Election Commission no later than 6:00 p.m. on the second Friday prior to the statewide election to have a ballot mailed to a specific address.

In Person

  • All in-person early voting takes place at the Sarpy County Election Commission, 1102 East 1st Street, Papillion, NE 68046.
  • The voter can vote their ballot at the Election Commission, or the voter can take their ballot home as long as the ballot is returned to the Election Commission or a drop box location before 8:00 p.m. on election day.
  • In-person early voting takes place 30 days prior to a statewide election, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
