The first Nebraska election requiring voter ID will be the May 14, 2024, statewide primary election.

  • All special and statewide elections after this date will require voter ID.
  • No special election prior to May 14, 2024, will require voter ID.

Acceptable IDs must have your name and photo. Valid photo IDs include:

  • Nebraska driver's license/state ID
  • U.S. passport
  • Military ID
  • Tribal ID
  • Hospital, assisted-living facility, or nursing home record
  • Nebraska political subdivision ID (state, county, city, school, etc.)
  • Nebraska college or university ID

Expired documents will be accepted. You can get a free state ID for voting from the DMV. If you were born in Nebraska and need your birth certificate to get a free state ID, you can get a free certified copy of your birth certificate from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. Note: A birth certificate is not a valid form of photo ID.

If you do not present an acceptable photo ID at the polls, you will be required to vote a provisional ballot. You must present a photo ID to your local election officials no later than the Tuesday following Election Day or sign a reasonable impediment certification for your vote to be counted.

Reasonable impediments include illness or disability, lack of documents required to obtain a photo ID, or a religious objection to being photographed.

Voters can call or text 844-338-8743 at any time to reach VoteRiders Voter ID Helpline.
