Deadlines are fast approaching for Nebraska citizens who want to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election, Secretary of State John Gale says.
 
Gale outlined deadlines regarding voter registration for the November election:  
 
--Mail-in voter registrations must be postmarked by Oct. 19. Registrations close at motor vehicle offices and state agencies on Oct. 19.

--In-person voter registration at county election offices ends at 6 p.m. Oct. 26.

Gale reminded people to update their voter registration if they have moved within a county, since this will save them time when they go to the polls.
 
The secretary of state’s website (www.sos.ne.gov) provides detailed information regarding the registration process. The website includes a voter registration form, addresses and phone numbers for county election offices, and a look-up tool that allows voters to verify their registration status.
 
“Take the time now to register to vote so you don’t miss out in casting a ballot in the November election,” Gale added.
 
People with voting questions can contact their county election office or the Secretary of State’s Office at (402) 471-2555.
