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 a priority polling location during early voting in October and/or 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 donโ€™t fret if youโ€™ve never poll watched before - we have a live Zoom trainings on Wednesday, August 19 from 6-8pm and Wednesday, August 26 from 1-3pm. If you can't make it to one of those โ€œliveโ€ trainings, you'll be able to watch a recorded training at your leisure any time between August 21 and October 15 (we'll email you links to register for any of these trainings after you complete the signup form below). We'll 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.
