Hilkemann’s Highlights
February 18th, 2015

Today I voted against LB 111. I am concerned about voter fraud. After all, living in Chicago for four years, there were frequent reports and allegations of voter fraud.

We need to protect our votes and voter rights. In the end, I could not support LB 111 as presented. Proponents could not recite any evidence of voter fraud occurring in Nebraska.
The bill did not address mail in ballots, which have the greatest potential for fraud.

Many college students, who choose to vote in their college town, do not have driver licenses with their voting address. They feel just as disenfranchised as the poor, elderly, and homebound when it comes to photo ID.

We already have a voter registration process in place, which does require verification of address and citizenship. The emails to my office overwhelming encouraged defeat of LB 111. In the end, 24 other senators agreed and LB 111 was defeated.
