AAJ Voter Protection Action Committee


Are you a lawyer, paralegal, or law student? 

The right to vote in American democracy should ensure that every person's voice is heard. But in recent years, we've seen efforts to suppress voters' access to the polls across the country. AAJ’s Voter Protection Action Committee (VPAC) is counting on you and your colleagues to help protect the rights of voters who might otherwise have their right to vote denied. By volunteering on Election Day and during Early Voting, you can help ensure that voters have fair and equal access to cast their ballots. AAJ is coordinating with national organizations to identify all lawyers, paralegals, and law students who can be poll monitors or call center volunteers.

Your help is critical to ensuring American citizens’ rights to vote and also the candidates’ rights to have all voters’ voices considered and counted.

How can I volunteer? 

AAJ has partnered with the two following organizations for the 2018 midterm election cycle. Sign up through the links below.
