Nebraska election officials say the state's four largest counties all consolidated polling places this year.

Secretary of State John Gale said Monday that Douglas, Sarpy,
Lancaster and Hall counties all increased the size of their voting
precincts and eliminated some polling places.

Douglas County made the biggest cuts of any of the counties,
leading to criticism. Gale says he had expected the counties to
take a more gradual approach to the precinct change lawmakers
approved last year.

Douglas eliminated 32 percent of its polling places in Omaha. Hall County cut 30 percent of its polling places around Grand Island. Sarpy County eliminated 25 percent of its polling places in
Omaha's suburbs. Lancaster County dropped just 15 percent of its polling places around Lincoln.
