HRC Members #turnOUT the Vote as Early Voting Starts in Nebraska

HRC President Chad Griffin was in Omaha this week to urge HRC members and supporters to take advantage of early voting in a key swing district.

Nebraska is one of the few states that divide their Electoral College votes based on congressional districts. Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District went blue in 2008 and is currently represented by HRC endorsed Democratic Congressman Brad Ashford.

Griffin was on the ground speaking at an early vote rally with State Senator Adam Morfeld, who has championed non-discrimination legislation in the state, highlighting HRC’s work in the Cornhusker State. HRC has hired a full time organizer for the Omaha area who will be working to get out the vote through Election Day.

Griffin also joined HRC members who were first in line at the Douglas County Election Commission office to vote early on Tuesday. Early voting in Nebraska began October 10 and ends November 7.
