Committee Hearing: LB20 (Voting Rights Restoration)

February 22, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The Nebraska Legislature’s Government, Military, and Veterans Affairs Committee will hear public testimony on LB20, which would restore voting rights for nearly 20,000 Nebraskans who have completed their felony sentences, including probation and/or parole.

1:30 pm CST – Wednesday, Feb. 22 – Room 1507 – Nebraska State Capitol, 1445 K St.

Nebraska is one of the few states to withhold voting rights beyond the completion of a sentence for a felony conviction. In Nebraska, people previously convicted of a felony must wait an additional two years past the completion of their sentence – including probation and parole – to vote.  While some argue that the waiting period gives people previously convicted of a felony a chance to prove that they are reformed, waiting periods like these can cause those with previous convictions to feel excluded from their communities and impact their ability to reintegrate into society.
