Three out of five Douglas County voters will be more than a half mile from their polling place under Election Commissioner Dave Phipps' sweeping overhaul of voting districts.
Previously, only two out of five voters had to go that far.
The plan, which kicks in for the May 15 primary election, cuts the number of polling places and means longer trips to the polls for many -- but not all – voters.
The World-Herald analyzed distances to the polls for nearly all the 315,000 registered voters in Douglas County.
While Democrats have been particularly critical of the changes, the analysis showed only slight differences in impact based on party affiliation. For example, 49.6 percent of Democrats will be farther from their polling place, compared with 46.9 percent for Republicans. About 17.5 percent of Democrats are a half mile farther from the polls, compared with 16.9 percent of Republicans.
Overall, Democrats remain closer to the polls than Republicans. More than 43 percent of Democrats are within a half mile of their new voting location, while 38.2 percent of Republicans are that close.
