State Canvass Certifies Nebraska Election

The results of Nebraska’s record-setting 2020 general election are official.

The state canvassing board certified the results Monday with little fanfare as the all-Republican board voted 5-0 to approve the final numbers. 

      Those include 966,920 ballots cast for a roughly 75% turnout – an all-time high heavily driven by mail-in ballots amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

      The board also confirmed that Nebraska will deliver 4 Electoral College votes to Donald Trump and one to President-elect Joe Biden. 

       Despite the pandemic and Trump’s longshot attempts to discredit results in other states, Secretary of State Bob Evnen says Nebraska’s election went smoothly.
