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.

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.
