Help the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin monitor the Nov 6th election. We are seeking volunteers to be trained as Election Observers and placed in polling places in specific areas around the state. We will do our best to assign you to a location near your home.
For the Nov 6th election we are focusing the Election Observation Program in three areas:
- to be sure there is no disenfranchisement
- to monitor the voter experience – including registration and showing ID
- to track any problems that can be fixed for future elections
You don’t need to be a League member to volunteer for this — although we’d love to have you join us! Learn more and sign up to volunteer at: https://my.lwv.org/
Contact LWV WI Voter Education Coordinator, Eileen Newcomer, at electionobservation@lwvwi.
