NE: 'We're a Small State, But We Vote'
By Carol D. Leonnig
Nebraska's Secretary of State John Gale had predicted 72 percent voter turnout statewide last week, but said in an interview today he can envision that number rising to 75 percent based on election-worker reports of dramatic turnout at polls today. He said the rise could also be due to very heavy voter registration and turnout operations by the Obama campaign in the state's second congressional district that includes Omaha.
"We're a small state, but we vote," Gale said. "It's a very exciting time. (In Gale's precinct), they had more people voting by 9 a.m. than ever before in history."
