Volunteer to Help Us Protect the Vote on Election Day!
The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the San Diego offices of DLA Piper, California Common Cause and the San Diego ACLU need your assistance on Election Day, November 6, 2012!
The Election Protection program is the nation’s largest, nonpartisan, voter protection coalition and ensures that eligible voters across the country are guaranteed their right to cast a ballot on Election Day. We are looking for attorneys, paralegals, law students and other interested volunteers to serve as nonpartisan poll monitors in San Diego County on November 6th. As a poll monitor you will identify and troubleshoot any issues confronting voters and you will have support from the attorneys on the national Election Protection hotline and the San Diego command center at DLA Piper.
Volunteers simply need to attend a 90-minute training the week before the election and sign-up for at least one, 4-5 hour shift on Election Day. Shifts will begin as early as 6:30 a.m. so it’s easy to volunteer and still get to work at a decent hour!
To volunteer, just sign-up for a training and one or more Election Day shifts at http://volunteer.866ourvote.org. Everyone, even those who are not lawyers or law students, should click on the blue lawyer sign-up button in order to pull up the San Diego trainings and shifts. For your convenience you will see that we have midday, evening and weekend training options.
