What We Do

Disability Rights Nebraska is the Protection and Advocacy system for people with disabilities in our state. We protect, support and promote the rights of people with disabilities.  This includes people with just about any disability including intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental illness and physical disabilities. With your help we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.

  • To vote in the next elections, you will need to show a photo ID. That can be a Nebraska driver’s license, Nebraska state ID card, Nebraska college or university ID card, any veteran, active military or tribal ID with a photo, a United States passport, or a document from your nursing home or assisted living facility with your name and a photo. If you don’t have an ID right now, you can get a free state ID from your local DMV.

From the Blog

Strictly Business - Starting this year all Nebraska residents will need to bring a photo ID with them to the polls. The good news is that a lot of different types of ID will be accepted. For people who are unable to afford the fee for a state ID card, the legislature has made state ID cards free, through your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), for voting purposes to make sure people can still exercise their right to vote.

This year will be the first time Nebraska has required photo identification to vote. We want to make sure you know how to prepare so you can cast your vote. We just made a video to help you prepare. Share it with your family and friends to make sure everyone knows what to do on Election Day.

Ways to get involved:

  • Connecting donors to causes they care most about.

  • Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by tax law.

  • Become a trained advocate to stand with families to help navigate the educational system for children with disabilities.
