Lincoln, NE (December 16, 2021) – The Lancaster County Election Commissioner will conduct a Special Recall Election for Waverly School District 145, Ward IV on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. The special election will be conducted entirely by mail.
Voters will be asked whether School Board President Andy Grosshans should be recalled. The petition drive was staged by residents of the district who were upset about a special resolution granting power to the Superintendent to make pandemic-related decisions, including a mask mandate. Opponents claimed that handing the power to the Superintendent amounted to a decision to discontinue directly representing voters.
Ballots for the special election will be mailed on Monday, December 20, 2021, to all voters of Waverly School District, Ward IV. Ballots may either be returned through the mail or by hand delivering the ballots to the Lancaster County Election Commissioner’s Office, 601 North 46th Street, Lincoln, during regular business hours.
