City of Omaha Elections

The City of Omaha holds a special primary and general election every four years to elect a mayor and all seven members of the city council. The elections are held the year following a Presidential Election. 

 
  • The primary election is held the first Tuesday in April (April 6, 2021). 
  • The general election is held the first Tuesday after the second Monday in May (May 11, 2021).

City of Omaha elections are officially nonpartisan. Political party information is not printed on the ballot. The two candidates receiving the most votes during the primary election will advance to the general election. The winner of each office in the general election will take office on the fourth Monday following the general election.

Mount Olive will be a polling site again this year.

Lutheran Family Services CARES Assistance

Mount Olive already supports Lutheran Family Services (LFS) through our "Bringing Christ to All the World" tithe. LFS has applied for and received a grant under the CARES Act that enables LFS to serve Nebraska individuals and families whose lives have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The financial assistance from this fund may be used to cover the following:
  • Overdue rent or mortgage to avoid eviction or foreclosure
  • Utility costs to prevent shutoff
  • Basic needs items, including groceries, formula, diapers, personal hygiene products, and household cleansers
  • Purchase of one smartphone and/or tablet per household to enable telehealth access or for school-aged youth to access online school platforms.

if you know of anyone who might need any of the above help in Omaha or anywhere in the State of Nebraska, please assist them by downloading and referring them to one of the information sheets in English or in Spanish
