Omaha, NE - It's Election Day and voters have until 8:00 p.m. to cast their ballots and decide who will be Omaha's mayor.

Challenger Jean Stothert or Mayor Jim Suttle?

Suttle has pushed his plan for economic growth, while Stothert plans to change spending in office.

The two have gone head to head several times, battling over taxes, crime, jobs and union contracts.

Suttle has been trying to regain ground since finishing second to Stothert in the April 2 primary.

Stothert claimed more than a third of the votes, versus nearly 24 percent for the Democrat Suttle.

Voters will also decide who will fill seven City Council seats and nine seats on the Omaha school board.

And voters in the Millard School District will vote on an $80 million bond.  If approved, the money will pay for renovations and security.

Douglas County election commissioner Dave Phipps is predicting a 35% turnout.

The turnout was 22.3% for the primary.
