Nebraska will hold its presidential and state primary election on May 12th. You may select to vote by-mail by requesting an absentee ballot by May 1st.
In Federal elections, only affiliated registered voters may participate in the respective party’s primary or caucus. However, unaffiliated voters may choose to participate with either party. In state-level races, however, unaffiliated voters may choose to vote in the Democratic primary but are unable to participate in the Republican primary. Visit the Nebraska Democratic Party and Republican Party websites for party specific information on caucus locations and procedures. Note that the Democratic Caucus will NOT be held at traditional polling locations.
Some congressional seats, state offices and constitutional amendments may be included on the ballot. As Nebraska has its Republican primary and state primary on the same day, note that you may request a nonpartisan ballot that includes nonpartisan state races only if you do not wish to participate in the Republican presidential primary election. Note that in state-level races, however, unaffiliated voters may choose to vote in the Democratic primary but are unable to participate in the Republican primary.
