The General Election is Nov. 3
MAKE A PLAN TO VOTE IN 3 EASY STEPS
Step #1: Register to vote online. You can change your party affiliation and change your address as well online.
Step #2: Add the Nov. 3 General Election and your polling location (if you are not voting from home) to your calendar now. Because of the Coronavirus, we encourage you to vote from home.
Step #3: If you applied for a Vote-by-Mail ballot for the Primary Election and are not on the permanent VBM list (which only a few counties have), you need to submit another application to vote from home for the General Election. Once ballot start to go out on Sept. 28, you can track the status of your ballot to make sure your vote was counted. We have all the Democratic candidates listed on our website so you know who the Dems are in the non-partisan races.

From the NE SOS office: “Voters with disabilities can use the accessible ballot marking device to vote early by scheduling an appointment with their County Election Office.” All county election offices are closed to the public, so you must call ahead to schedule an appointment.
FORMERLY INCARCERATED NEBRASKANS
Nebraska law ensures that people who have served time can have their right to vote restored after a two-year period following the successful completion of their sentence, including probation.
