Voting Rights Initiatives

Civic Nebraska engages, empowers, and protects Nebraska voters seeking to take part in their democratic institutions.

DEFENDING AND ADVANCING VOTING RIGHTS

A more modern and robust democracy for all Nebraskans means a year-round culture of civic engagement that creates lifelong voters. Access to the ballot is essential to this philosophy. Civic Nebraska is vigilant in ensuring our elections are modern, fair, and accessible.

About The Program

Let’s get it done, Nebraska:
Support LB83

Katrina, who re-entered society without the right to vote, urges the Nebraska Legislature to give all citizens the tools they need to re-integrate successfully. Tell your senator to support LB83.

In 2019, the Nebraska Legislature is considering the restoration of voting rights to citizens who have completed their felony sentences. LB83, introduced by Sen. Justin Wayne, is the same bill from 2017 that passed final reading 27-13-7 but was vetoed by Gov. Pete Ricketts.

This bill means all hands on deck. The most powerful advocacy tool we have is our fellow Nebraskans who are disenfranchised by law — like Katrina Thomas, who we feature in the above video.
