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.

Whether successfully fighting and advocating for online voter registration, uniform election guides, or access to the polls on Election Day, we empower voters to be the change they wish to see.

Our voting rights program is built upon four key pillars:

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.
