Oppose the Voter ID Legislative Bill (LB) 239

    1. Petition by

      Nebraskans for Civic Reform

Voting is the MOST BASIC DEMOCRATIC RIGHT, and there are those that are trying to take this RIGHT away and make it a privilege for a select few.

Voter ID laws disproportionately impact youth, low income and disabled citizens and prevent them from voting. Further, voter ID laws are a solution to a voter fraud problem that does not exist. Finally, voter ID laws will potentially cost the State of Nebraska millions of dollars when it is in a budget crisis.

      This is an expensive solution for a problem that DOES NOT exist in Nebraska.

      I believe this is a pure example of class warfare--something beyond race, even. At the very least, it is a complete waste of tax dollars.

      To ensure that the basic right to vote is protected for all, especially low-income, youth, elderly, who may not have the time or resources to register for a voter ID.
