Nonpartisan elections are generally held for municipal and county offices. In addition, some school boards elections are nonpartisan and nonpartisan elections are common in the election of judges. On the other hand, partisan elections openly list a candidate's party affiliation on the ballot.
The state of Nebraska self-identifies as the only state legislature that is entirely nonpartisan. The Nebraska State Legislature is unicameral.
