The other elected offices in Nebraska are nominated on a non partisan basis.
Note: Political party enrollment is your choice, but in order to vote for a partisan candidate in a primary election, you must be enrolled in that political party. If you register nonpartisan you will only be able to vote for ballot issues and nonpartisan candidates in the primary election.
Offices such as President, Governor, State and County officials are partisan, therefore if you register nonpartisan you will not be able to vote for them in a primary election. You may request a senatorial or congressional ticket of your choice if you are registered nonpartisan in a Primary Election. In General Elections everyone votes the same ballot.
