But, note that if you register for the first time in Nebraska by mail, you should provide a copy of a current and valid photo ID, or a copy of a utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document which is dated within 60 days immediately prior to the date of presentation. The document needs to show the same name and residence address provided on the voter registration application.

If you do not provide the above proof of address, you will listed at the poll, but will be asked to provide proof of your address.
