Protect the Vote as a Non-Partisan Poll Monitor

Nothing should stand between an eligible voter and the ballot box. Register to be a nonpartisan poll monitor to help protect the vote

You can make a major difference for voters this year. If you care about making sure EVERYONE in your community has a voice in this year’s elections, the most important step you can take is signing up to be an Election Protection volunteer today. Nonpartisan Election Protection volunteers like you will be voters’ first line of defense against restrictive election laws, coronavirus-related voting disruptions, or  anything else that could silence their voices. There’s a role for everyone -- whether it’s helping voters from home, assisting voters safely in person, or tracking online disinformation.

These are a few of the roles that states are recruiting for Election Protection in 2020. These roles may look different state-to-state. Experience and roles will vary.  Depending on the role(s) you choose, trainings will be available to learn how to help voters leading up to the election and on Election Day!

  1. Poll Monitor: Volunteers will be provided PPE to support voters at the polls in person and connect voters who are denied the ballot to legal resources and answer questions for voters.
  1. Roving Poll Monitor: Use a checklist to drive (or bike!) between polling places and check on lines, signage, and poll preparation. Report back to HQ on any problems at the polls that need to be solved.
  1. Social Media Monitor: Identify voters who are posting on social media about problems voting, connecting them to resources and support, and reporting vote-related mis/disinformation.
  1. Voter Contact: Use textbanking and phonebanking tools to talk to thousands of voters to give them accurate voting information and support.
  1. Election Administration Outreach: Work with election administrators to make sure they are as prepared as possible to run accessible and safe elections.

  2. Poll Worker: Election Protection coalition will connect you to resources to help you apply and get selected as a poll worker to help manage the elections themselves.
