Elections do not happen only when we vote for President! City elections are happening in Lincoln and Omaha in 2017 and have huge impacts for us. It is critical to turn out for both the primary (April 4) and the general elections (May 2 in Lincoln and May 9 in Omaha)! If you do not live in Lincoln or Omaha, we need volunteers to knock doors or make calls! Choose a candidate you support and contact them to get involved. We must win these elections to show power and momentum for statewide elections in 2018—that is when we will take on Sen. Fischer, Gov. Ricketts and many State Legislative races. Show up in 2017 to show our blue power!
Omaha and Lincoln share a Primary date: April 4, 2017
Omaha general election date: May 9, 2017
Lincoln general election date: May 2, 2017
Polls for the primary and general are open 8am-8pm. You can also vote by mail!
If you live in Omaha, the grassroots group Black Votes Matter gives rides to the polls, just call 402-575-0144.
