OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Early voting ends Monday. If you still have that early voting ballot...you may want to drop it off in person.

You can take it to the election office or drop it off at any official ballot drop-off location.

You can find an official ballot location by logging on to vote411.org.

There are several measures on the ballot to pay special attention to.

One is amendment one that would abolish slavery as punishment for a crime.

Amendment two puts a cap on how much a payday lending service could charge its customers. The proposed cap is 38 percent.

Additionally, a high stakes battle has been brewing for a while over whether to allow casino gambling in the state of Nebraska.

No matter how you vote, getting that ballot in is key.

“We have said we hope to be done by about 3:00 a.m., or 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. It might be a little earlier than that. It will be a late-night,” said Douglas County Election Commissioner Brian Kruse.

With social distancing still a concern, making a plan to vote is a good idea as voting lines have been long.

Nationwide, with all of the early ballots having to be counted, it could be a while before we actually know who won the presidential election.

If you did vote by early ballot and you want to make sure your ballot was received, Nebraska voters can track ballots here.
