Polling Place Changes Hit Older Omaha Hardernew

On Primary Election Day, 82-year-old Robert Wright drove to Evans Tower on 24th Street in north Omaha from his home at 9th and Fort Streets. He heard on television that Evans Towers was a polling place. Because he hadn’t received a card in the mail telling him where to cast his vote, he figured someone at Evans Towers could at least give him that information, as he did not have internet access to look it up. Poll workers told him to drive to the pavilion at Miller Park. He used to vote at Sherman School, about five blocks from his home. His new polling location at Miller Park was 3 miles away.
