Voting Rights Legislative Initiatives

In an effort to create a more modern and robust democracy, Nebraskans for Civic Reform works with state senators and local officials to introduce and pass proactive legislation to increase accessibility and participation in Nebraska elections. Unfortunately some bills are introduced that threaten individual voting rights. When these bills are introduced NCR works with coalition partners and community leaders to prevent such harmful legislation passing.
