Nebraska voters are going to the polls today to decide on races for governor, Congress and whether to expand the state’s Medicaid system.

One measure in the hands of voters is whether to expand Medicaid health coverage to an estimated 90,000 low-income residents who don’t qualify for the current program but earn too much to get federal tax subsidies that would help them afford insurance on their own.

Republican Governor Pete Ricketts is seeking re-election against Democratic state senator Bob Krist of Omaha.

GOP Senator Deb Fischer is seeking a new term as well, facing off against Democratic hopeful Jane Raybould.
