Douglas County Election Commisioner Dave Phipps is predicting a 15-20 percent turnout on April 2
Friday is the final day for Omaha voters to register for the primary election at DMV offices, libraries or through the mail.
“If voters miss this deadline, they can still register in person at our office until 6:00 p.m. on March 22,” says Douglas County Election Commisioner Dave Phipps.
Based on previous city elections, Phipps tells 1110 KFAB he is predicting a 15-20 percent turnout for the primary. That means only about 40 to 50 thousand voters will cast ballots in the City and OPS elections.
There are seven candidates for Mayor and 39 candidates for the Omaha Public School Board. There is also competition in the City Council races in Districts 2, 4 and 7.
