OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Douglas County Election Commissioner Brian W. Kruse said on Monday that some changes will be implemented for the 2020 presidential primary election occurring on May 12.

The number of polling places will increase from 221 to 222 which will impact some voters, said Kruse.

“These are changes that occur in the normal course of business,” Kruse stated. “Polling places are still in the process of being finalized, but at this time it appears approximately 7 percent of Douglas County polling places will be affected. These changes are caused by growth, annexation, a building being temporarily unavailable to serve as a polling place due to construction or a scheduling conflict, changes in building ownership, or a new building becomes available that will offer a better voting experience for voters.

Those impacted will receive a postcard in April. The Douglas County Election Office wants to remind people that you can request a ballot through the mail. People interested can find more information on the election commission's office at
