Ballot Initiative 432 proposes the requirement of valid photographic identification to vote, while Initiative 433 would incrementally raise Nebraska's minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2026.

Today’s show is an in-depth look at two initiatives on this year’s ballot.

First, Maria Corpuz talks with Senator Terrell McKinney about Initiative 433, which would incrementally increase the state’s minimum wage from $9 to $15 by 2026.

Then Tom Knoblauch talks with Heather Engdahl, director of voting rights at Civic Nebraska, about Initiative 432, which would require voters to present valid photo identification to cast their ballots.
