About The Program

The Voting Rights Program works to ensure elections in Nebraska are fair and accessible through non-partisan elections observation, investigation, voter education, litigation, and advocacy. Our observation and investigation work make sure that local and state agencies are following state and federal law and our litigation work seeks to compel compliance and protect voters’ rights through our advocacy and policy.

Through our advocacy and policy program, we work to remove barriers to voting and modernize elections to better serve all Nebraskans. Our voter-focused programs engage low propensity and newly registered voters to create a year-round culture of civic engagement and turn first-time voters into lifelong voters.

Art + Activism: Limited edition, screen printed posters to support voting rights in Nebraska!

We believe strongly in the power of design to empower and amplify social activism. We partnered with 6 Nebraska designers to create limited edition, screen printed posters centered on the theme of “Access and barriers to the ballot box.” The results were stunning. 

There are only 35 prints of each design, so get yours now!

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.
