The general election is fast upon us.
Citizens, especially in Omaha, NE, have a pivotal chance to make some real changes. And I’m not just saying that. If we push through these last few days, we can swing our unicameral legislature to the conservative side for the first time in many years. And that’s not counting the senate, holding the house, and on and on and on.
Below, are three solid resources to take to the polls with you. Print your sample ballot from the Election Commission and fill it in while you do your research. Don’t skimp on this, you don’t deserve to complain about our government if you can’t even put in the work to vote well.
