Election Protector Training

Join Civic Nebraska’s voting rights team for a virtual training to learn the ins and outs of election protection for Election Day on Nov. 3, so you can be a volunteer election observer in Nebraska. We’ll go over basic election law, some do’s and dont’s at polling places, what’s asked of nonpartisan election observers amid COVID-19 restrictions, and observers’ important role in ensuring free, fair, and transparent elections in Nebraska. RSVP for this Zoom meeting at this link.

Oct. 5, 2020 – 5 to 6:30 pm
Election Protector Training for Attorneys

Civic Nebraska is hosting a legal observer training for lawyers who can volunteer with our Election Protection Program during the 2020 general election. The training will cover Nebraska election law, what attorneys can do to assist voters, and other information about the uniqueness of the 2020 election. Follow this link to reserve your spot via Zoom today.

Thank you for all that you do,
