This is what democracy looks like: Observe the May 15 election

Civic Nebraska is seeking volunteers to be nonpartisan election observers for the May 15 statewide primary election.


Civic Nebraska is seeking volunteers as nonpartisan election observers for the May 15 statewide primary election. Observers act in a passive role, monitoring polling places and reporting their observations to Civic Nebraska.

Election observers look for any irregularities or differing treatment of voters based on geography. This information is shared with local county election officials and state election officials to identify areas of success and improvement and pursue future legislative initiatives to improve the voter’s experience.

To sign up, click here for the Election Protection sign-up form.

Volunteers will need to attend one 90-minute training. Potential volunteer observers can contact us for one-on-one or small-group trainings. We also offer remote video training.

To learn more about becoming a Civic Nebraska election protection volunteer, contact Brad Christian-Sallis at 402.812.2234 or
