LINCOLN–(KFOR May 2)–If you are unable to cast your ballot for Tuesday’s (May 7) Lincoln city general election, you have a chance to do so through early/absentee voting.

Lancaster County Election Commissioner David Shively announced today that the Lancaster County Election Commissioner’s Office will be open extra hours for early/absentee voting for the May 7th City General Election.
