November 12, 2020



The 2020 general election for the United States was held a last Tuesday. Interest was high and across the nation, voters turned out in record numbers.

In Nebraska, unofficial results indicate that 88,279 more Nebraskans voted this year than in 2016. The year 2020 will go down in history with almost 75 percent of the registered voters, actually voting. In 2016 actual voters were 71 percent of the registered voters.
