Adam Morfeld has been serving in the Nebraska state senate since 2014. He sits on the Education and Judiciary Committees and is dedicated to advancing participatory democracy. Morfeld founded Civic Nebraska in 2008 to protect voting rights, create more accessible elections and strengthen K-12 civic education. He is currently the organization’s President and CEO. Civic Nebraska is the only public interest group in the state dedicated to creating uniquely Nebraskan civic education programs and conducting Nebraska-specific election administration policy research. Though Nebraska uses nonpartisan elections for state legislative races, Morfeld believes voting can be made even more accessible and supports same-day voter registration, automatic voter registration, expanding vote-by-mail and expanding Nebraska’s open primary to include statewide and federal offices.
