Election Day Near For Fremont Immigration Ordinance Voters
FREMONT (KPTM) - After several months of debate, decision time is almost here for voters in Fremont.
In less than 24 hours, the town of about 26,000 must decide what to do with a controversial law; an ordinance that requires rental licenses for landlords and makes it illegal for them to rent to illegal immigrants.
"It was taken care of before," said a voter against repealing the law. "I thought that's why we had the vote, but evidently it didn't mean anything."
"I understand wanting to keep track of people who are renting and all of that, but the hoops and the red tape you have to go through for every rental property is a waste of time," said Jay Uzdill, a supporter of repealing the law.
As the debate goes on, there's no debating the level of interest this topic brings up. Early voting records indicate turnout on Election Day could even be high. As of right now, 640 early ballots have already been cast compared to just 476 in 2010.
Polls open Tuesday at 8 A.M. and will remain open to voters until 8 P.M. For more information about Election Day, click here: http://www.dodgecounty.ne.gov/election.html
