Here's what you need to know!

Registering to Vote

If you’re already registered to vote, you’re good. The new voter ID law does NOT change the state’s existing voter registration process.

Voting with a Valid Photo ID

Under the new law, IDs issued by the following entities are accepted for voting:
● the federal government, including a U.S. passport.
● the State of Nebraska, such as a driver’s license or state-issued ID.
● any Nebraska college or university.
● local governments within the State of Nebraska.
● the U.S. military, or IDs for veterans.
● Native tribes.
● patient records with photos from nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospitals.

The new law also allows for the acceptance of expired IDs if they are issued by the above entities.

IDs that Are Not Accepted

● out-of-state driver’s licenses and state IDs.
● photo IDs from out-of-state educational institutions.
● IDs from private organizations, such as your workplace.
● any ID without a photo, such as a Social Security card.

Obtaining a Valid ID

The new law waives the fees to obtain a state photo ID for voting if you don’t have one.

You will need to present a copy of your birth certificate or other identifying documents to your local Nebraska DMV office.

If you don’t have a copy of your birth certificate, the new law waives the cost for one copy of a birth certificate for Nebraska residents at the state Department of Health and Human Services.

Please Note!

When you go to the polls on Primary Day, May 14, 2024, or General Election Day, November 4, 2024, you must present an ID with a photo and your name.

by Mail:

If you vote by mail, you must write your driver’s license number or the number on your state-issued ID card.



If you still don’t have a valid ID, you may cast a provisional ballot, but then you must produce a valid ID within a week of the election to your local election officials for your vote to count.
