VOTE411.org Live with Candidate Information,
2022 General Election Voter's Guides Available for 11 Counties
2022 General Election voters are now able to access statewide information on candidates and ballot initiatives at VOTE411.org by inputting their address and receiving information for candidates that will appear on their ballot. We also created PDF printable voter’s guides for 11 Nebraska counties with the same information. You can access the county voter’s guides using the following links: Adams, Buffalo, Cass, Dodge, Douglas, Douglas en Español, Hall, Lancaster, Lincoln, Madison, Sarpy and Scotts Bluff.
We would like to thank the League members who individually spent hundreds of hours to provide Nebraskans with this important candidate information. Thanks also to the Nebraska Civic Engagement Table for grant support for this effort. If you see a candidate who has not responded, we encourage you to contact them. There is still time to be added to the electronic VOTE411.org. They can contact us at email@example.com.

Join LWVNE as a Member at Large
A member at large is part of the state League instead of one of our four local leagues in Hastings, Lincoln, Omaha or Seward.
Becoming a LWVNE member at large provides you with a community that spans the state and enables you to take action on issues that affect all Nebraskans.
In a rural state like ours, a member at large can spread the mission and vision of the League’s non-partisan commitment to strengthen democracy by empowering and educating voters through grassroots advocacy in their communities with the support of the state League’s resources.
Members at large can attend state board meetings and participate in all programs offered through the state League.

LWVNE Opposes Voter Restriction
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.
- VOTING IS A RIGHT NOT A PRIVILEGE!
