Volunteer as a Poll Monitor

To wrap up our week of voting volunteering posts on the C|M|LAW Library blog, here’s one final opportunity. The Ohio Voter Rights Coalition, in conjunction with The Action Network, is organizing poll monitors to work on Election Day and during the early voting period. Poll monitors work outside of polling locations in safe low-contact settings. If you’re interested, you’d be expected to distribute “Know Your Rights” cards, answer questions on things like ID requirements, help voters help their correct precincts, and report on any problems they see outside the polling location. Once you complete a 90-minute online training, you’ll sign up for a minimum 3 hours shift on Election Day or a two-hour shift during the early election period.

Think this could be the Live Justice opportunity for you? Then find more information at Ohio Poll Monitoring 2020 or contact the host at
