With polls nearing closing time in Nebraska, residents from across the state took to their Twitter accounts to share what Election Day looked like for them.

One poll worker in Lincoln near 20th and South streets estimated their location’s voter turnout to be 89% just two hours before polls closed.

An Omaha resident found their neighbor starting a carpool heading to the polls. In another tweet, they wondered if unseasonably warm weather nudged more people to cast a ballot.

Younger Nebraskans, like these students from Grand Island Senior High, also contributed to Election Day by volunteering at their local polls.

Voters discussed the ballot measures, like Nebraska Amendment 1, which removes slavery as a form of punishment for crime from the state constitution’s amendments.

Some Twitter users spent their time online sending positive thoughts to their favorite politicians.

Others shared their anxieties about potentially tense post-election reactions.

Nebraska’s split electoral system gained national attention and inspired some, like this Twitter user originally from Norfolk, to watch Nebraska’s race more closely.

When the state’s projections flipped from partially blue to red, others celebrated.

And one candidate running for the Nebraska State Senate District 9 seat, Marque A. Snow, took a moment to honor the end of his campaign.

A poll worker in the Omaha metro summed up her experience by focusing on the positives, the team she worked with and getting votes casted efficiently.
