Democrat Kara Eastman was at the Memorial Park Bridge over Dodge Street Wednesday evening waving signs as part of the last push for votes before the polls close. 

About two dozen support waved campaign signs and chanted "vote for Kara" for about an hour. Eastman chatted with supporters, including young voters, for about an hour.

Eastman has had a packed election days schedule. She cast her ballot in the morning at Sorensen Community Center and then made last-minute campaign efforts. 

Eastman will meet with volunteers later in the evening at her North Omaha campaign office before heading to her watch party at the Omaha Design Center.
