We all know voting is important but sometimes the process can be intimidating. A critical step in ensuring that you can vote on Election Day is to register.


Although it can seem like a hassle, the voter registration process helps to ensure the integrity of our local, state and federal elections. There are three ways to register to vote in Nebraska: online, by mail, or in person.

The deadline for registering online or by mail is October 19th. The deadline if you register in person at your county election office is October 26th by 6 PM Central Standard Time.

Register Online

Perhaps the easiest and fastest way to register to vote is online. Through the Nebraska Voter Registration portal you can register, update your address, change your party affiliation and even update your name if it’s already been changed with the DMV.

What You Need

When registering, you will need a Nebraska Driver’s License or State Identification Card.

Please Note: If this is your first time registering to vote in Nebraska, in order to register online you need a Nebraska Driver’s License or State Identification Card. If you don’t have one of those forms of ID, you will need to register in person or by mail.

Deadline: October 19th

In order to register online, your application must be submitted by October 19th (the third Friday before election day).


Register By Mail

If you’re not comfortable registering online, you can register by mail. The fastest way to access the form is to download and print it. If you don’t have printing capabilities contact your county election office to have one sent to you, or simply stop by to pick one up.

What You Need

To register, you will need your Driver’s License Number or the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number. If you don’t have either of these, you can leave that step blank.

If you’ve never registered or voted in Nebraska before, include a copy of a current and valid photo ID, or a copy of a utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document which is dated within 60 days immediately prior to the date of presentation showing the same name and residence address provided on the voter registration application.

Please Note: If you register to vote by mail and don’t include a copy of a current photo ID or other document that has your name and address, you will need to bring one with you when you go to vote on Election Day.

Deadline: October 19th

Your completed form must be mailed to the county election office by October 19th (the third Friday before election day).
