Nebraska Student Voter Info

Students who lived in Nebraska prior to attending school and who wish to establish or keep their Nebraska voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Nebraska case law makes clear that the possibility of moving after you finish school should not matter in determining residency. Students who consider their school community their principal residence should not have a problem registering and voting.

Nebraska Ex-Offender Voter Info

Individuals convicted of a felony are ineligible to vote while incarcerated, on parole, or on probation. Voting rights are automatically restored two years after the completion of all supervised release (except if convicted of treason). Ex-offenders should re-register to vote.
