YORK – Figures provided by the Nebraska Secretary of State’s office show that the number of registered voters in York County is considerably less than it was four years ago.

The comparison with four years ago is being made because that was an election year involving races for commissioner and state seats, like this year.

Four years ago, there were 10,416 registered voters in York County. According to the secretary of state’s office, the number of registered voters in York County, at this time, is 9,764.

In reviewing other past election years, the numbers were also higher – typically always above 10,000. In 2012, as an example, there were 10,218 registered voters in this county.

The Secretary of State’s office reports that of the York County registered voters, 6,486 are Republicans, 1,693 are Democrats, 1,506 are non-partisan and 79 are Libertarian.

First-time voters and individuals who need to make alterations to their registrations (due to changes in name, residency or party affiliation) are encouraged to get those registration tasks done now if they want to participate in the Primary Election in May.

April 30 is the postmark deadline for mailed-in registrations, according to the secretary of state’s office. The same holds true for voter registration forms to be delivered to election offices by someone other than the person registering to vote.

May 4 is the last day for in-person voter registrations to be made.

The statewide Primary Election will be May 15.
