LINCOLN, NEB. – Nebraska Farm Bureau has taken a position of support for a constitutional amendment that would require people to show valid photo identification before voting.
“Voters need to have confidence in our election process. This constitutional amendment not only protects the integrity of our elections by asking voters to present identification before casting a ballot, but also helps ensure Nebraska’s elections remain free and fair,” said Mark McHargue, Nebraska Farm Bureau president.
Nebraska Farm Bureau delegates representing farmers and ranchers from all 93 Nebraska counties adopted policy in December 2021 that supports an effort to require registered voters to show photo identification when reporting to the polling place to receive a ballot. The initiative will appear on the Nebraska General Election ballot November 8.
The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service, and advocacy efforts. More than 55,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
