(Intro)

Hello Nebraskans. If you want to vote in November, first you've gotta be registered to vote. If you're not sure whether you're registered already, there's a link in the description where you can go and check right now. It's very easy. If you still need to register, you can do so online if you have a valid Nebraska driver's license or state ID. If you don't have one, maybe you're a student from another state, or you just don't drive, you will need to print out a form and mail it in, like with a stamp. Which I know is kind of a hassle, but it's important, so do it anyway. Both the links to the online registration and the printable form will be in the description. Either way you register, you've gotta do it by October 21st to vote in the November election.

Great, so now you're registered. Now you get to vote. If you'd like to vote from the comfort of your own home, you can request to vote early by mail, also known as absentee voting. All you have to do is fill out the form in the description and mail it in to your county clerk or election commissioner any time between July 11th and October 27th. Then, you just wait for your ballot to show up in the mail, fill it out at your own pace, and send it back before November 8th.

You can also vote early in person at your county election office between October 9th and November 7th. Early voting hours vary by county, so use the link below to find your county election office. You may need to call or email them to find out when you can vote early.

If you really want the excitement of voting on election day, November 8th, there's a link in the description you can use to find out where you will need to go to vote. Polls are open from 8 am to 8 pm if you're in the Central Time part of the state, 7 am to 7 pm if you're in Mountain Time. You shouldn't need to show an ID unless this is your first time voting and you didn't provide one when you registered. So if that sounds like you, bring a current and valid photo ID or a proof of residence like your most recent utility bill, paycheck, or bank statement with your name and address on it.

Closer to the election, usually about 5 weeks before election day, you can go to the link in the description and find a sample ballot that tells you everything you'll be able to vote for. You don't have to vote for every single item on the ballot. You can leave things blank if you want to, but your local elections can be very important, so it's worth checking out what's on there ahead of time. You can even print out the sample ballot out and bring it with you to the polls so you can remember what you wanted to vote for. All the links you need to check your registration, get registered, get an absentee ballot, find your polling location are in the description below. Thank you for voting.
