What we stand for:
We believe our government should be of, by, and for the people. But the way we vote limits our choices for leaders and fails to hold them accountable to the communities they represent. We want better ideas, better candidates, we want a system that lives up to all the promises of democracy.
Nebraska’s primary system is run by political parties, but more than a third of Nebraska voters do not want to belong to a political party, which means they are excluded from the primary process. The result is candidates who cater to the extremes, parties who define themselves in opposition to each other, and a majority of voters left out of the process until the very end.
LB 776 has been introduced to make Nebraska an open primary state.
Ranked Choice Voting
Ranked choice voting (RCV) allows voters the option to rank many candidates in order of preference: first, second, third, and so forth.
If your vote cannot help your top choice win, your vote counts for your next choice.
We can remove artificial barriers to voting so that we can all exercise our rights while still maintaining security and a paper trail for election audits. We advocate for:
- Free state identification for voter registration
- Restoring voting rights after completion of felony sentences
- Making election days state holidays
- Protecting early voting and voting by mail – which is essential for rural voters
