Nebraskans must raise their voices to ensure our elections are not hindered by lengthy, repetitive steps and new technicalities to disqualify voters from rightfully casting their ballots.

VOTER I.D. CAUSES:

COSTS 
FOR TAXPAYERS

›› Most recent estimates suggest that strict photo ID would cost taxpayers of Nebraska nearly $3 million in the first year to implement, and then nearly an additional $1 million every year after that to maintain.
›› This may require voters to purchase their own photo identification card before being able to vote.

COMPLICATIONS 
FOR VOTERS

›› In-person voters would endure longer waits to cast ballots and then face the possibility of being turned away from their polling place on Election Day.
›› Early voters would face redundant hurdles, including needing to print out a copy of ID to send along with their absentee request or ballot.
›› Voters would not be able to use social security cards or birth certificates, which don’t have photos, nor could they use military, tribal, and student IDs, which don’t always list addresses.

CONSEQUENCES
FOR EVERYONE

›› Strict voter ID measures make it harder for eligible Nebraskans to freely and fairly cast a ballot – especially young, low-income, rural, Black and brown, and senior voters.
›› Severe voter ID restrictions are a burden for Nebraskans with disabilities, the elderly, and those in areas without reliable broadband, transportation, or where DMVs have limited hours of operation.
