ELECTION PROTECTION

Protect the Vote

From Democracy NC

Vote Protectors have an impact: During the 2020 Primary Election, Vote Protectors sounded the alarm when a precinct in Bertie County, NC ran out of ballots. Their work allowed us to fight for — and win — an extension to keep the polls open that evening. Without that Vote Protector on the ground, hundreds of voters could have been disenfranchised.

Be a Vote Protector

The COVID-19 pandemic, new changes to election law, and poll worker shortages pose unique challenges to voters in 2020. Democracy North Carolina’s nonpartisan Voter Protection program works to ensure that every eligible voter in our state can register to vote and 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. 

Vote Protectors monitor polling places in their communities, flagging: 

  • Long lines
  • Problems with curbside voting or accessibility 
  • Voter confusion
  • Misinformation or voter suppression

As a vote protector, you will:

  • Attend a 2-hour online training
  • Receive a vote protector t-shirt, sign, and other materials
  • Monitor 1 or more voting sites on October 15, October 31, and/or November 3 
  • Report problems to the 888-OUR-VOTE hotline

See below for frequently asked questions about serving as a Vote Protector in 2020

Important: due to COVID-19, Vote Protectors will only be asked to carry out tasks that can be done without person-to-person contact. Any interaction with voters or other individuals will be purely optional and at the discretion of each Vote Protector. 

Sign up at one of the links below to attend a virtual volunteer training. Though these trainings are online, please sign up according to the region you will be living in during the election, October 15-Nov. 3

99 Reasons to Flip NC

54. BECAUSE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION IMPROVES LIVES AND SAVES MONEY

Early childhood education is one of the most effective ways to improve lives. Not only does it help children thrive academically, it also reduces teen pregnancy, incarceration, welfare use, and health care costs – a huge return on investment by every measure. Democrats in the NC Senate have proposed a bill that would greatly increase resources for the state’s birth-through-eight early learning system.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?

Alamance County needs election workers for the 2020 Elections!

Check this link to the Alamance County Election Official Application. We especially need elections workers during the 17-day early voting period. We have a new early voting location at the Elmira Community Center in Burlington and we have newly expanded weekend voting, including Sunday voting. This means we need more elections workers than in the past. And the COVID virus has meant that many of our predominantly older elections workers who are more vulnerable have chosen not to return to work this year’s election.

You can also fill out the NC State Board of Elections Democracy Heroes form to be contacted by BOE staff: https://www.ncsbe.gov/get-involved
