Election Billing

Political subdivisions are responsible for all costs associated with special elections held on their behalf. For elections held in conjunction with statewide primary and general elections, political subdivision costs are based on the number of ballots their race(s) or issue(s) appeared on and the total number of ballot inches taken.

Billing Calculations

According to Nebraska Revised Statutes § 32-1203, the following method is used to determine the costs associated with each statewide primary and general election for a political subdivision.

  • The Election Commission determines the total cost of conducting the entire election.
  • The total cost is divided by the number of precincts for that election to determine the cost per precinct.
  • The Election Commission determines the percentage of each political subdivision's ballot inches for each precinct and multiplies that percentage by the cost per precinct to determine each political subdivision's precinct cost.
  • The Election Commission then totals each political subdivision's precinct costs to determine the total cost of the election for each political subdivision.
  • The minimum charge will be $50.00.
