Secret ballots are an essential feature of the nonpartisanship nature of the Nebraska Legislature. They allow lawmakers to base their votes on their own convictions and the needs of their districts, rather than taking orders from a political party. Voting to eliminate secret ballots means voting to change our legislature into something partisan. I took an oath to represent the people of my district, not to represent a party. I am proud to be for this nonpartisan institution and I am committed to protecting it.
