Three rural state senators who live in other counties, now represent voters in the City of Lincoln (pop. 289,000+) in Lancaster County.
- Sen. Rob Clements, District 2, lives in Elmwood (pop. 667), in Cass County.
The day after redistricting was completed, Sen. Clements joined the Nebraska Freedom Coalition in calling for an audit of Nebraska's election; specifically two counties, Douglas and Sarpy. The coalition is asking for a state-backed effort, checking both ballots and software. Read 3NewsNow article.
Clements also signed an email to fellow senators asking them to support legislation banning government and educational entities in Nebraska from installing COVID-19 vaccine mandates. A similar ban signed into law in Iowa has prompted an ongoing legal battle with the ACLU of Iowa and a mother in Council Bluffs. Read WOWT article.
