Voting Rights Legislation
In an era of political division, one thing we can agree on is that voting systems should be efficient and effective.
Summary: In an effort to restore the franchise to Nebraskans convicted of a crime, this constitutional amendment would allow for felons to vote. Specifically, it would remove felony convictions other than treason from being a disqualification for voting, Right now, former felons are required to wait years after their sentence before they can vote, but that would change if this were added to our constitution.
Common Cause supports efforts to restore the vote and will take action to aid this Resolution.
Summary: The newest attempt to require Voter ID in Nebraska. We’ve worked with a coalition over the past eight years to oppose these measures, and will continue to do so in 2020. Voter fraud isn’t a threat in Nebraska, and we don’t need to spend millions of dollars implementing a system to prevent it.
