LWVNE Opposes Voter Restriction Petition
We encourage our fellow Nebraskans to consider the real-world costs, complications and consequences of restrictions on our right to vote.
- The voter restriction amendment would cost Nebraska taxpayers millions of dollars.
- Elections in Nebraska are already conducted efficiently, securely and with integrity.
- If passed the voter restriction amendment will make voting more complicated.
- This petition language is a vague and dangerous voter restriction proposal that would have real consequences.
