Join the Nebraska voting challenge
Nebraska, being number-one in Sports, and Fan Support. We want to now be known as number-one in the percentage of eligible residents (in all parties) voting in national elections.
In elections starting with the 2018 national elections, we will show our percentage of voters showing up to the polls, will be the highest for our state, and will challenge other states and territories to try to beat us.
The highest in 2014 for top 10 states ran from 44.6 to 59.3% (Nebraska was 41.3% of eligible voters.)
