On March 15, Nebraska LB 25 passed the Government, Military, and Veterans Affairs Committee unanimously. Existing law says a party remains on the ballot if it polls 5% for any statewide office, at either of the last two elections. The bill adds a second method; it also stays on the ballot as long as it has at least 10,000 registrations. The author of the bill is State Senator Laura Ebke, who is a member of the Libertarian Party. The Libertarian Party has more than 10,000 registered members. Currently it is the only party on the ballot except for the Republican and Democratic Parties.
