Voter ID is back at the Nebraska Legislature. This time it’s been proposed as a potential constitutional amendment, in the form of a Legislative Resolution seeking placement on the November ballot. This is a bad idea for Nebraska, and we won’t let this happen. Join us at 11 a.m. this Saturday, Feb. 15, for an indoor rally at Wilson & Washburn, 1407 Harney St. in Omaha, where we’ll mobilize against LR292CA – the resolution that would open our state to harmful voter ID laws.

We’ll have brief speeches from elected leaders and community advocates, plus free snacks, kid-friendly activities, and a cash bar for those over 21. And, there will be opportunities to add your voice to the thousands of Nebraskans who oppose LR292CA.

Here’s the schedule of events:

11 to 11:30 am – Doors open: Food, drinks, and greetings

11:30 am – Protect the Vote speaker: Brad Christian-Sallis, Voting Rights Field Director, Civic Nebraska

11:45 am to 1 pm – Advocacy, activism, and pro-voter activities:

> Write a note to state senators about protecting the vote

> Kids Vote! voting booth

>Register to vote and/or check your voter registration status in Nebraska

> “Frame the Issue” photo ops

We all know that the application of voter ID measures is an expensive “solution” in search of a nonexistent problem. And we all know that it can create unnecessary barriers to the ballot for many Nebraskans. Together with fellow Nebraskans, neighbors, and elected leaders, let’s send a clear message that adding barriers to the ballot is not a Nebraska value.

 RSVP here via Facebook. Or, just drop by Saturday morning at 11. We can’t wait to see you!
