A "yes" on Nebraska's Initiative 432 would require voters to present photo identification before voting.
Ballot measure details
Initiative 432, the Photo Voter Identification Initiative, aims to add an initiated amendment making photo identification a prerequisite for voting to Nebraska's Constitution.
Support and opposition
The campaign for the initiative is spearheaded by Citizens for Voter ID. Supporters argue the initiative would ensure election integrity.
"Showing ID when they go to vote, it's one of the ways we can strengthen the integrity of our elections. It's a great opportunity for the second house, the people of Nebraska, to be able to weigh in a way where the Legislature has not been able to get it passed," Gov. Pete Ricketts said, according to Nebraska TV.
Nebraska for Free and Fair Elections is the movement opposing the initiative. Opponents of the initiative argue that it would restrict Nebraskan voters.
"The only thing we are certain these measures would do is to make it harder for eligible Nebraskans — especially young, low-income, rural, black and brown, and senior Nebraskans — to freely and fairly cast a ballot," Civic Nebraska, a nonprofit organization, said, according to Ballotpedia.
The money race
The initiative has seen $2,077,500 in support contributions and $69,290.26 in opposition contributions, according to Ballotpedia.
