BEATRICE – With less than three weeks until Nebraska’s Primary Election, 14,196 persons are registered to vote in Gage County. Election Commissioner Dawn Hill says that total number has been relatively stable over the years.
:07 “as we can”
As of Tuesday, there were 7,303 persons registered as Republicans, 3,881 as Democrats, and 2,881 as non-partisan.
Hill encourages people to contact her office if they’ve changed their address or know of someone on the registration roll who has passed way, or no longer resides in the county.
Hill says people registering as non-partisan should keep something in mind when it comes to a Primary Election.

Early voting interest continues to be healthy. Hill says her office’s latest figures show 2,602 early ballots have been requested.
Early ballot forms were sent out beginning April 7th. Persons can vote early up to the day before the primary.
