Nebraska Farmers Union PAC Announces General Election Endorsements

For Immediate Release

October 23, 2020

LINCOLN, NE – Today is the last day to register to vote and to request a vote-at-home ballot in Nebraska. If you’re already registered to vote (but didn’t request a ballot), you can still vote early at your County Election Office. If you’ve requested a ballot you can mail it back in or better yet, drop it off at an official election drop boxes. Or, you can always vote in person at your polling place on November 3rd! Voting is both a right and an obligation.
