Eligibility for Voting in Nebraska

The Nebraska legislature dictates that all voters be U.S. citizens over 18. You must also be a resident of Nebraska and the county where you register. People who are 17 can register to vote as long as they are 18 before the general election.

You cannot vote if you are currently in prison on a felony charge or if it’s been less than two years since you completed your sentence. This includes parole or probation.

If the court finds you mentally incompetent, you are not eligible to vote in Nebraska.
