Now comes the difficult work of building and sustaining confidence in our democratic systems and institutions.
Voting is our most cherished democratic right. Without it, there is no prospect for change, no method to hold our leaders accountable, no real way for our values and vision to be represented in our institutions.
This most basic right is never guaranteed – so it must be championed, defended, and exercised to the fullest. At CIVIC NEBRASKA, we fight for elections to be fair, modern, and accessible; we work to defeat bad policies that threaten the right to vote; and we advocate for measures that protect our rights.
