    College Student Voting In Nebraska

    Students can establish voting residency in Nebraska if they have a present intention to remain at their Nebraska school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal home.Students who consider their school community their principal residence should not have a problem registering and voting.

    Students who lived in Nebraska prior to attending school and who wish to establish or keep their Nebraska voting residency,should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state.If you have established residency in another state and are moving back to Nebraska with the intent to reside here, you will need to follow the normal registration procedures to re-register at home. If you move to a different county within Nebraska, you must update your address or re-register in order to retain your eligibility to vote.

    Mover's Guide: Nebraska

    Under federal law, if you move within 30 days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.

    If you moved to Nebraska from another state, you must register to vote in Nebraska to be able to vote. Unless you register in person at the county clerk’s office, the last day to register in time to vote in the next election is the third Friday before the election. You can also register in person at the county clerk’s office until 6 p.m. on the second Friday before the election.

    If you moved to a new address that is covered by the same polling place as your old address, you can vote a regular ballot at that polling place after confirming your change of address at the polling place. This is true regardless of how close to the election you moved.

    Registered voters who moved from one residence to another in the same county, or who changed their name and remained in the same county will be allowed to vote at the polling place designated for their new residence. These voters may be asked to cast a Provisional Ballot upon completing a certification and new registration form.

    Persons casting Provisional ballots may check to see if their ballot was counted starting the second Wednesday after the election by visiting https://www.votercheck.necvr.ne.gov/ or calling toll free 1-888-727-0007. Provisional ballots are counted only if the information the voter provided on their certification forms was verified.

    If you moved to a new address in a different county, you need to register or update your voter registration for your new address before the registration deadline to be eligible to vote.
