LINCOLN – In times like these many Nebraskans are ready to help. Secretary of State Bob Evnen expressed appreciation to the Nebraska REALTORS® Association for its support in asking Realtors to step forward as poll workers.
“We as Realtors care deeply about our communities. And we are dedicated volunteers who give back to our communities. So, in the spirit of demonstrating our civic duty I encourage Realtors across the state to participate as polls workers in the Primary Election on May 12”, said Nebraska REALTORS® Association President Steve Coram, of Kearney, Nebraska.
“I am grateful for our community-minded Realtors who desire to fill the role of poll workers in our upcoming primary election May 12,” Secretary Evnen said.
Realtors and others who wish to step up and sign up as poll workers can do so by contacting their county clerks or county election commissioners.
