Many Nebraskans living overseas don’t vote either because they don’t know they can or they think it would be too complicated. However, every American holding a US passport can, by law, vote in Federal elections. And it’s easy. You can register to vote at www.VoteFromAbroad.org.
Nebraska restores a felon’s right to vote after a two-year period once time is served, including probation.
You can read all the background on voting rights for felons here.
We Welcome Independent Voters
The Nebraska Democratic Party allows non-partisan (Independent) voters to request a Democratic ballot. Just ask for a “non-partisan, Democratic partisan ballot” when you arrive at your polling location.
In 2020, under Chair Kleeb’s leadership, this will be the first time Independent voters can cast a ballot in the Democratic Primary and have their votes count towards the Presidential nomination. Democrats no longer hold a caucus in our state, we have moved to a Primary for the Presidential election.
The Republican Party in Nebraska does not welcome Independent voters. Democrats know we do not win elections without Independents and we look forward to ending the one-party control of our state together.
Nebraska has a nonpartisan Legislature. Ballots for legislative races do not list party affiliation. The top two vote-getters in the Primary go on to the General Election.
