Learn how to be a Vote Protector!
The COVID-19 pandemic, new changes to election law, and poll worker shortages pose unique challenges to voters in 2020. So we’re working to ensure that every eligible voter in our state can successfully cast their ballot. Vote Protectors (otherwise 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 and ensure that every polling place is running as it should — sounding the alarm when something isn’t right. This training will show you how to be a help and support system to voters while also staying safe!
