HALL COUNTY — According to Hall County Election Commissioner Tracy Overstreet, the majority of this election is happening by mail-in voting. In Hall County, they're already experiencing some issues as 21 duplicate ballots have had issues.
In a statement, Overstreet said, “I have talked personally with the majority of the affected voters and instructed them to write duplicate across the return envelope and return it to our office or to destroy the duplicate on their own. Most had already done so.”
"Once a voter returns a ballot, the voter record is locked down and no other ballot can be received. Under Nebraska law, a voter may receive up to four replacement ballots if a marking error on the ballot occurs, but only one ballot is allowed to be returned for counting,” said Overstreet.
Overstreet also said a processing update has been done to ensure the duplicate issue does not reoccur.
