Let’s talk about voter ID

In February, a series of events will provide Nebraskans an opportunity to discuss a voter ID initiative in Nebraska, and to learn how to talk with fellow voters about the proposal’s costs, complications, and consequences.

Politicians are gathering signatures to amend the Nebraska Constitution with a strict photo ID requirement in order to vote in our state. This proposal would severely restrict voters via lengthy, repetitive steps, and disqualify otherwise eligible voters with technicalities.

On Monday, Feb. 21, join us at UNO’s Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center for A Courageous Conversation on Voter ID. The event, which begins at 7 pm and will be in-person and virtual, is the first in a series of community conversations on important current topics. To learn more, click here. 

Then, join us for a pair of virtual phone-bank trainings, where you can learn the skills to discuss the harms of this proposed law with voters. Pick a date to join our trainers on Zoom –  Thursday evening, Feb. 24, or Saturday morning, Feb. 26 – and register so you can join.
