State officials are looking to clear up confusion over mail-in ballot requests sent out by a third-party organization. Scotts Bluff County Commissioners raised concerns after the Center for Voter Information out of Springfield, Missouri sent 228-thousand absentee ballot applications in Nebraska, calling the move "voter fraud." However, Secretary of State Bob Evnen says the applications are legal and a legitimate way to request a ballot. Evnen added that the mailers are "redundant," since every registered voter in Nebraska will receive an early ballot application this month.
