During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential that we not only protect our health but also our civil liberties — including our fundamental right to vote. It’s on all of us to make our plan to vote. In Nebraska, all eligible voters can vote by mail. Polls will also be open for voting on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3. No matter what your plan is, we invite you to be a voter.

Election Day will be here before you know it. We recommend reviewing key deadlines before you make a plan to vote. Our friends at Civic Nebraska have a helpful calendar
