We Need You! Non-Partisan Election Observation Program in the Fremont

by

On Tuesday, February 11th, the City of Fremont will be holding a special election to determine whether the residents of Fremont want to repeal Ordinance No. 5165 . The ordinance, which was passed June 2010, bans the hiring or renting to individuals who cannot prove they are legally in the United States.

Civic Nebraska is dedicated to ensuring accessible elections for all Nebraskans and works to accomplish this goal is through its Non-Partisan Election Observation Program.

Through this program, Civic Nebraska recruits election observers from all political backgrounds to observe polling places in a non-partisan way to ensure the voting rights of Nebraskans are not being violated. More specifically, the program’s election observers will be monitoring wait times, language issues, and ensuring no one is unlawfully turned away without a regular ballot or provisional ballot. Civic Nebraska will have an election protection headquarters staffed by attorneys monitoring the elections.

This program has been proven successful in the past. For example, our non-partisan election protection operation in 2012 led to a successful administrative complaint on behalf of voters in Douglas County who were unlawfully denied the right to cast provisional ballots pursuant to both state and federal law.

Civic Nebraska is hoping to recruit enough election observation volunteers to be stationed at every polling location in Fremont on February 11th. If you are interested in volunteering with Civic Nebraska’s Non-Partisan Election Observation Program, please contact Katie Moore by Tuesday, January 21st by phone at 712-635-4704 or by email at katie.moore@civicnebraska.org.
