As an officially-credentialed Poll Watcher, you'll be the eyes and ears for the Democratic Party of Georgia's (DPG) Voter Protection team inside or outside a priority polling location on November 3, and the first line of defense against Republicans' concerted attempts to suppress the vote in November. You'll observe the entire voting process, report and track any issues at your polling location while working with DPG volunteer attorneys to make sure every eligible voter can cast their ballot.
We've got you covered with plenty of training options and resources so don’t fret if you’ve never poll watched before! You'll be able to watch our short series of three training videos, all available now. You can watch these videos at your leisure any time before October 25 (we'll email you a link to register for each of the trainings after you complete the signup form below). We also have completely optional weekly Poll Watcher Zoom "Office Hours" leading up to the General Election, where you can connect with our staff and experienced poll watchers to ask any questions you may have before poll watching.
