At the backbone of our whole political system is people’s right to vote. The Election Commissioner assists in that right by maintaining the state’s election records and assisting county officials with conducting federal, state and district elections. The department also works hand in hand to ensure compliance with all state and federal election laws.
You must re-register whenever you change your name, your address or your political party affiliation. Failure to do so will result in a delay at your new polling site on election day.
What is the registration deadline?
Mail in registrations must be postmarked on or before the third Friday before an election. You may register in person at the election office on or before the second Friday prior to the election.
Will I receive notice that my mail-in registration his been accepted and processed?
Yes, if you completed the form correctly and mailed it by the deadline (Third Friday prior to the election). If you do not receive notification within 10 days that your registration has been accepted, call the Election Commissioner. In Lincoln County, Nebraska the Election Commissioner is the County Clerk. You are not a registered voter until you receive confirmation. Voter Registration Form
