Early voting for registered voters in Logan County began Feb. 2 and
will continue through Feb. 19. In-person absentee voting will
continue in the office through Feb. 23.
Litterly reported that
only 28 voters have cast in-person absentee, grace period or early
votes to date for the upcoming election.
"Four years ago we did not have early or grace period voting, and
the voter turnout was 20 percent in the city primary election,"
Litterly said. "It is my hope that we exceed that turnout. However,
following the comparison trend from the general election, based on
early, grace and absentee voting prior to general Election Day in
November, it appears that this election may be a low turnout as
The veteran county clerk encourages Lincoln voters to cast
ballots early if they anticipate being absent on the primary
election day, Feb. 24.
Litterly's office is preparing for the Lincoln primary and will
change gears two days after the primary to be ready for the
consolidated election for the entire county.
For all voters who have moved, it is necessary to register the
change of address in order to be qualified to cast a ballot in the
February city election. A registrant must provide two forms of
identification in order to register to vote.
Voters with questions should contact the Logan County clerk's
office at 732-4148.
