Omaha Votes

Your Vote, Your Voice


Local elections matter. Voting isn’t just about choosing who represents us in the White House—it’s about determining who we want to lead our local communities—and every vote counts. Whether you’re mailing in your ballot or heading to the polls to vote in person, plan ahead and vote! A voting plan is exactly that—figuring out how and when you will. The pandemic means a lot will be different about voting this year. Making a voting plan early will help to avoid running into any challenges later. If we’ve learned anything from the past year—it’s that we need to be prepared and plan ahead!
