Voting Facts

  • Who can vote in the May 15 primary election?
    Anyone registered to vote can vote in the primary election.  There will be some partisan races like Governor that only Republicans can vote for Republicans and Democrats for Democrats.  However, many races are nonpartisan, like the school bond issue and everyone can vote on it.

    Who can vote on the school bond issue?
    Any resident of Papillion La Vista Community Schools who is registered to vote can vote on the school bond issue. City limits have no impact on who can vote on the school bond issue.  If you live in the school district and are registered, you can vote.

    How do I vote on the school bond issue and other primary election issues?
