Nebraska now has two ways to retain ballot access

Laura Ebke

It is now easier for a party in Nebraska to retain ballot access, because a party that has at least 10,000 recognized voters will be a recognized party.

Although Governor Pete Ricketts didn’t sign the bill, he let it go into effect. The bill had been introduced by Libertarian legislator Laura Ebke, and passed 49–0.

A party still retains ballot access if it has a statewide candidate receive 5 percent of the vote in either of the last two general elections.

The LP of Nebraska was already on the ballot through 2018. It currently has 12,012 registered voters.
