Election commissioners survey voter turnout
Polls opened at 8:00 Tuesday morning and they don't close until 8:00 Tuesday night. With three hours to go, county election commissioners across the state say primary turnout appears to be about the same as previous years.
U.S. House, legislative and Board of Regents races are all on the primary ballot.
But the Republican Senate primary is getting most of the attention.
The three top candidates, Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, state Senator Deb Fischer and Treasurer Don Stenberg, are competing for the chance to take on likely Democratic nominee Bob Kerrey in the general election.
That race could be bringing more people to the polls.
In Lancaster County, there's been a 23 percent turnout, compared to 26 percent in 2008.
