Civic Nebraska is a non-profit organization that builds youth civic leadership, promotes civic health, and protects voting rights. Civic Nebraska seeks volunteers for non-partisan election observers on Nov. 3, 2020.
Observers act in a passive role, monitoring elections and the polling places, reporting back to Civic Nebraska their observations, particularly instances of concern. As part of their observations, election observers gather data on how elections are ran from one county to the next and record any irregularities or differing treatment of voters based on geography. Volunteers will also check to see if polling places are ADA compliant.
This information is shared with local county election officials and state election officials to identify areas of success and improvement and pursue future legislative initiatives to improve the voter’s experience.
