The Election Protection Coalition, the nation’s largest, non-partisan voter protection coalition, is offering a volunteer experience in the heart of democracy. The Coalition’s goal is to ensure that voters have friendly, well-trained, non-partisan volunteers available outside polling places to answer questions and monitor activities.
Minnesota’s Election Protection Coalition needs volunteers to participate as Election Protection Monitors outside polling places on November 6. Each shift lasts approximately 2 hours and will monitor 2-3 polling places, during which volunteers work in teams of two and are provided with t-shirts. Volunteers receive a 90 minute training with materials including Minnesota election laws, the voting process, sections from the election judge’s manual, recent changes to polling places, and a smartphone app.
