Nebraskans Approach Upcoming Deadlines for Voter Registration

LINCOLN, NE — New voters have until Friday, Oct. 21, to submit their voter registration forms online or by mail in time for the Nov. 8 midterm election. Mail-in registrations must be postmarked by Oct. 21 in order to be accepted. 

Should Nebraska voters submit their application in-person, they have until Friday, Oct. 28 to do so. Additionally, Nebraskans should double-check their voter registration in order to update or correct any appropriate information, said Gavin Geis, Common Cause Nebraska’s executive director.

“The right to vote is the foundation of our government, and elections — both generals and primaries — are a key element of that foundation,” Geis said. “Please encourage your friends, family, and community to spend the time ensuring their right to vote is intact and ready for Nov. 8 by registering to vote.”
