Are you a lawyer, paralegal, or law student? 

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. AAJ is coordinating with national organizations to identify all lawyers, paralegals, and law students who can be poll monitors or call center volunteers.

WHY DO WE NEED POLL MONITORS?

We need poll monitors because every Election Day Americans face obstacles to voting. Several polling problems occurred during this year’s primaries.

WHAT’S THE ROLL OF A POLL MONITOR?

  • Inside Polling Locations:

A poll monitor is entitled to observe polling place practices and procedures during all voting hours. Poll monitors may not disrupt the election process, however they may take action if they observe something to be in violation of voters’ rights.

  • Outside Polling Locations:

Poll monitors work outside polling locations on Election Day to greet voters, answer questions, and report problems. They keep an eye out for voters in distress, record problems, and do their best to make sure that all eligible voters are able to cast a ballot.
