Support the Freedom to Vote Act

Voting Rights across Nebraska and our nation is a priority for us. We urge you to support the Freedom to Vote Act in the Senate. We held a candle light vigil at Sen.. Sasse’ office to urge him to vote for the act and support voting rights. Thanks to the Omaha World Herald Opinion page for printing the public pulse letter calling on Senator Ben Sasse to vote for the compromise Freedom to Vote Act. The letter below was co-authored by co-president Cynde Glismann & GOTV member Joanna Lindberg.

Letter to editor to support the Freedom to Vote Act

We encourage our fellow Nebraskans to consider the real-world costs, complications and consequences of restrictions on our right to vote by signing the petition on the Constitutional Amendment for voters restrictions (Voter ID).

  • The voter restriction amendment would cost Nebraska taxpayers millions of dollars.
  • Elections in Nebraska are already conducted efficiently, securely and with integrity.
  • If passed the voter restriction amendment will make voting more complicated.
  • This petition language is a vague and dangerous voter restriction proposal that would have real consequences.
