Observers are trained to collect information detailing handicap accessibility, provisional ballots, wait times, voter issues, and more. On the day of elections, our observers across the state visit polling stations to note the physical accessibility of the polling place and accessibility of the ballot itself.
Training for general election poll observation will be held on the following dates: Students can Sign up here to volunteer.

Civic Nebraska uses the information that is gathered to build a post-election report, which is shared with county election officials, state election officials, and the public to identify areas of success and improvement. This report also informs future legislative initiatives that can improve Nebraska voters’ experiences.
