Civic Nebraska has joined with ACLU of Nebraska, Black and Pink, the Nebraska Civic Engagement Table, OutNebraska, and the Professional Transgender Network of Nebraska in sharing information with election officials about voting access for gender non-conforming, non-binary and transgender Nebraskans.

A two-page tip sheet lays out simple definitions and guidance that will help poll workers create a welcoming environment and protect eligible voters’ rights to cast a ballot.

Read the news release here, and see polling-place guidance for transgender Nebraska voters here. From now until polls close on Election Day, Civic Nebraska’s Election Protection Line is open and available to provide assistance. Call or text us at 402.890.5291.

Our thanks to ACLU of Nebraska and all of our partners in this initiative. It’s the third election that partners have shared the resources, which help build a more modern and robust democracy for all Nebraskans.
