A Poll Watcher is an official position for the purpose of monitoring the activities that occur inside a polling location and helping voters resovle any problems that may occur.

We also keep an eye out for any unusual situations, e.g., power outages, voter fraud, machine/internet malfunctions, etc.
It requires your presence at a precinct polling location during the hours of 6:30 am until 7:30 pm on November 8. Volunteering for the position also requires your attendance at a manditory training seesion, the date of which will be announced.
