Voting in this time of Covid19

There is so much going on right now. It is more important than ever to focus on our health: physical, mental, and civic!

A few weeks ago the Nebraska Secretary of State announced that all registered voters in Nebraska would be receiving a vote-by-mail application so that they could request a mail-in ballot for the primary election on Tuesday, May 12th.

A mail-in ballot is sometimes called an absentee ballot. Anyone can request one for any reason – including because you want to vote without visiting the polling place during a pandemic.

If you are a registered voter in Nebraska you should be receiving a vote-by-mail application in the mail. Be sure to fill it out and return it to your local election commission office by May 1st.

Voting is an essential part of being civically engaged and it’s a right a lot of people had to fight for. It is also one of the best ways we can have a direct impact on deciding who our representatives are from Washington DC all the way to our local city council.

We urge you to take the necessary precaution of voting-by-mail so we can ensure the health of our communities and our democracy.
