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.

Nebraska cannot afford Voter ID
Once again, the Nebraska legislature will debate expensive legislation requiring all Nebraskans to show a photo ID when voting. In addition to being ineffective and impractical, Voter ID legislation is EXPENSIVE. The Legislative Fiscal Office estimates it would cost $2.9 million to implement, and another $750,000/year to maintain.
Nebraska is in a $200 million budget shortfall. To implement this expensive legislation to solve a problem that doesn’t exist is irresponsible.
