Learn how to be a Vote Protector!
Ever-changing election law, poll worker shortages, and the continued pandemic pose unique challenges to voters in 2022. But we want every voter in our state to successfully cast their ballot, so we are working to ensure that. Vote Protectors (previously known as poll monitors) serve as our “eyes and ears on the ground” at voting sites across North Carolina. They help voters who encounter problems at the polls, verify that every polling place is running as it should, and sound the alarm when something isn’t right. In 2020, our Vote Protectors were the reason we solved hundreds of issues in a matter of minutes.
