2020 Primary Voters’ Guide Now Available

The League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha has published a nonpartisan voters’ guide for more than 50 years. This year, for the first time, we did not print the paper guide due to concerns involving the coronavirus pandemic.

However, we did still complete the voters’ guide for the 2020 primary election, and the guide is now available in PDF format here: 2020 Primary Voters’ Guide.

Please feel free to read this guide on your computer, and/or to print it out on your own.

Personalized ballot information is also available on Vote411.org. On this site, you can enter your address to receive the candidates’ survey responses specifically for the candidates who will appear on your ballot.

Thanks to those candidates running for public office who took the time to reply to the voters’ guide questions so voters could make informed choices. If you have any questions about how to access the nonpartisan voters’ guide information, contact us.
