Update March 25, 2020

The Nebraska Democratic Party has canceled all in-person meetings for the foreseeable future, replacing them with electronic meetings, including the upcoming County Conventions and the State Convention, previously scheduled to begin on June 5 in Omaha. Caucuses will not meet at that time. More information will be coming as the details are finalized.

A Big Blue Weekend is scheduled for August 22, which will include the Morrison Exon dinner and a special state convention. The Caucus will meet at that time and officer elections will be held then.

Until we can meet in person – complete your Census Form, sign up for a Vote by Mail ballot and volunteer to virtual phone bank to Get Out the Vote for our Democratic Candidates in the primary.
