    Voter info

    Three ways to register

    » Online at

    » Print out an application (Here's the form) and take it to your local election commission (Here’s a list)

    Registration questions

    Visit to check whether you’re registered to vote and find your polling place. If you think you should be able to vote at a polling place but there’s a problem with the registration, request to fill out a provisional ballot. The election commission will collect them and then has a week to verify whether you are eligible to vote.

    See a sample ballot from the Nebraska Secretary of State website here.
