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 an assigned polling location and the first line of defense against any concerted efforts to confuse and deter voters.

Theย August 11 Runoff (and early vote period beforehand) is the final crucial testย of Georgia's election system before the November election. If you didn't experience the frustration of voting during the June 9 primary firsthand, you saw it on the news: procedural mismanagement, machine malfunctions, hours-long lines, the list goes on. But we're not letting this voter suppression continue.ย The important data our poll watchers collect and report in real-time on August 11 and during the Runoff's early vote periodย will play a critical role in shaping the DPG's strategy for ensuring a fair General Election in November. And,ย by poll watching on August 11,ย you'll be more than ready to protect the vote as poll watcher in November!

We'veย gotย youย coveredย ifย you've never poll watched before - we have a live Zoom training on Monday, June 22 from 5-7pm, and ifย youย can't make it to that training,ย you'll be able to watch a recorded training at your leisure any timeย between June 24 and July 30 (we'll emailย youย links to register for either of these trainings afterย you complete the signup form below). We'll also have completely optional weekly Poll Watcher Zoom "Office Hours" leading up to the August 11 Runoff, whereย youย can connect with our staff and experienced poll watchers to ask any questionsย youย may have before poll watching.
