LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — A Nebraska bill aims to change when early voting ballots can be sent out to voters.

State Sen. Mike Groene introduced a measure that would shorten the time ballots can be delivered to voters from 35 days to 20 days before a primary or general election.

The bill would also shorten the time frame when an absentee voter can pick-up a ballot in-person from their election commission office from 30 to 15 days.

The measure was introduced Wednesday.
