A Nebraska lawmaker is raising concern about volunteers collecting ballots in the Millard Public School district levy override election. 

State Senator Lou Ann Linehan has called third party vote collecting "very disturbing" and believes the legislature will address it next session. 

Residents who want funding to pass have been standing outside schools accepting the mail-in ballots. It is not illegal in Nebraska for third parties to collect ballots, and organizers say the effort is aimed at boosting turnout.
