Student Voters

In order to register to vote in Nebraska, you must: 

  • Be a U.S. citizen.
  • Be at least 18 years of age on or before the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November.

You can register in the county you are attending college if that is the place in which you intend to establish a home and be habitually present. Leaving for temporary purposes, such as college attendance, need not result in a change of residence for voting purposes. If you are a Nebraska resident, you can register with the election office in your home county even if that is in a different county than the one you attend college. Likewise, if you live in a state outside Nebraska, you can vote in your home state.  Declaring your residency in Nebraska does not change your residency for tuition purposes.
