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 https://www.votercheck.necvr.ne.gov/.
  • 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.

      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.
