LINCOLN, NE (September 26, 2022) – Nebraska Secretary of State Bob Evnen has scheduled three public hearings for the two ballot initiatives appearing on the ballot for the November 8th general elections.

  • Voter ID Constitutional Amendment: Initiative Measure 432
  • Minimum Wage Initiative: Initiative Measure 433

State law requires Secretary Evnen to host public hearings in each of Nebraska’s three Congressional Districts whenever the initiative petition measures have been placed on the general election ballot.

“The purpose of the meetings is to educate citizens and the media on the initiatives prior to the elections,” Evnen stated.

Informational pamphlets have been prepared and will be available at each hearing. In addition, the informational pamphlets are available in county election offices and the office of the Secretary of State.
