Nebraska: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Do I need a voting card or my ID in order to vote?

  • No, the card is for information only and does not need to be presented to election officials in order to vote. The only time voters are asked for their ID is if they were a first time Nebraska registrant who mailed in their registration application and didn't provide ID at that time.

Where do I vote?

  • Each voter must cast his/her ballot at his/her assigned polling place. If you do not know the location of your polling place, contact your county clerk/election commissioner, or click this link
  • Whenever you register or re-register to vote, your county clerk/election commissioner will inform you of your polling place location. Your voting card informs you not only of your polling place, but also your voting districts.

What time will the polls open?

  • The polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Central Time Zone and from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Mountain Time Zone.

How does a person vote?

  • Registered voters go to their assigned polling place where there will be three or more poll workers at a table checking voters in. Voters will be asked for their name and the residence address they are living at. In primary elections voters will also be asked to name their party. Upon verifying the information, the election workers will provide the voter with ballots assigned to persons living in their district and instructions on how to cast a ballot.
  • In Nebraska all counties use optical scan ballots; so voters are instructed to darken the oval completely, not to erase or cross out and return to the table if they have spoiled their ballot and need a new one. Ballots are tabulated at the precinct level using M100's in 1/3 of our counties and centrally counted in larger counties using a M650 that can count over 300 ballots a minute.
