Nebraska Goes to the Polls in Primary Elections for Senate, Gov., Others

Tuesday was primary day in Nebraska, with voters heading to the polls to narrow down the list of candidates before November's general election. Voters had choices to make in races for Governor, U.S. Senate, and Congress amongst others.Locally, turnout was low. Voters were sparse in Dakota County. Precinct workers blame that on the fact this is an "odd year" election, meaning there's no presidential race.There was another factor at play in the low turnout at precinct 4-A and 4-AA, located in First Lutheran Church along Dakota Avenue in South Sioux City.The church is one of the buildings being affected by construction along a 10 block section of Dakota Avenue. Poll workers saw fewer than 10 voters from 8 a.m. until noon. They hoped it would pick up after five when people get off work this evening.For a list of statewide primary results, visit
