The number of elections in Nebraska varies by year. Nebraska has a gubernatorial election every four years. Members of the state's United States congressional delegation run for election or re-election at the times set out in the United States Constitution. Primary elections assist in choosing political parties' nominees for various positions. On a regional basis, elections also cover municipal issues. In addition, a special election can occur at any time.

In a 2020 study, Nebraska was ranked as the 22nd easiest state for citizens to vote in.[1]
