Omaha City Council members withdraw support for nonresident voting rights

People who live outside Omaha's city limits won't be in the running to get voting rights for city elections, after all.
A week after the Omaha City Council voted 4-3 to forward a nonresident voting rights proposal to the Legislature, council members who had supported the idea changed course. No one on the council voted to override Mayor Jean Stothert's veto of the plan, which would have pushed for voting rights for people living in a three-mile area around the city.
