Three ways to register
» Online at nebraska.gov/apps-sos-voter-registration.
» Register in person at an election commission office, the DMV, or in Douglas County, any of Omaha’s 12 library branches.
Visit www.votercheck.necvr.ne.gov to check whether you’re registered to vote and find your polling place. If you think you should be able to vote at a polling place but there’s a problem with the registration, request to fill out a provisional ballot. The election commission will collect them and then has a week to verify whether you are eligible to vote.
To request an early ballot
You must request an early voting ballot in writing for each election. In Douglas and Sarpy Counties, voters should receive in the mail soon a card that includes an application for early voting. If you’ve already submitted a request for an early voting ballot, you can ignore it. If you haven’t, you can fill out the form on the card and then mail, fax or — for the first time this year — email a picture to the election commission. Just don’t forget to sign the request, otherwise it’s not valid. You can also vote in person at the election commission office.
