OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Douglas County Election Commission will be mailing out green by-mail early voting ballot applications postcards over the next several weeks.

More than 11,000 Douglas County voters who recently registered for the first time or re-registered to vote will receive the postcards. This includes voter registration applications received since early July 2020.

“If voters plan to vote early by mail and have not already requested a ballot, submitting the green postcard application is the most efficient and preferred method,” stated Brian Kruse, Douglas County Election Commissioner. “However, each voter should submit only one request; returning multiple forms is unnecessary and slows processing.”

Ballots begin to be mailed Monday, September 28 and will be mailed every weekday through Friday, October 23. The deadline to submit an application for an early voting ballot to be mailed is Friday, October 23, at 6:00 p.m.

Voters who have not received a green postcard from the Douglas County Election Commission may print an early voting ballot application at [].

Instructions: Under Shortcuts, click on Vote Early By Mail (look for the envelope icon), then click on 2020 Statewide Presidential General Election Early Voting Request Application. However, no form is required to request a by-mail ballot. The following information may be provided on a plain sheet of paper: election name or date, voter’s name, voter’s date of birth, voter’s current home address, address to which the ballot should be mailed (if different than the home address), phone number and/or email address, and voter’s signature.
