Below is information about 
wo specific volunteer opportunities: Poll Observers and Poll Workers. More than 500 volunteers are needed for our county. 
It's not necessary that volunteers for these roles be lawyers, but lawyers and law students bring a good skill set for these roles. The objective is simple: To ensure that every eligible voter can register, that every registered voter can vote, and that every vote is accurately counted. That's why the work you would be doing is so critical.

Voter Protection Team / 2016 Poll Observer

WHY POLL OBSERVERS ARE IMPORTANT: Poll Observers are the campaign's eyes and ears inside of polling locations. They volunteer on behalf of Democrats up and down the ticket to help break down barriers to voting by making sure that all laws and rules are applied fairly and letting us know about issues at the polls as they arise. 

HOW YOU BECOME A POLL OBSERVER: Poll Observers are registered Ohio voters credentialed by the Democratic Party. We will assign you to a high priority polling location and ensure that you have the training, information, and credentials that you will need on Election Day. Please keep an eye on your inbox for important updates from our team, including your assigned location, training information, and your official Poll Observer credentials. 

  • Be at your assigned polling location from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. or 30 minutes after your poll closes (whichever is later) on Election Day, November 8.
  • Attend a training session in October. A member of our Voter Protection team will be in touch with more information on the dates and times available as we get closer to Election Day.
  • Be a currently registered voter in the state of Ohio.
Voter Protection Team / 2016 Poll Worker

WHY POLL WORKERS ARE IMPORTANT: The most direct and effective way of assuring that every eligible vote is counted is to have qualified and motivated Poll Workers. The right to vote is the foundation of our democratic process. Making sure that voting laws are fairly and accurately enforced is an essential step toward ensuring that every eligible Ohioan can participate in this critical election. 

HOW YOU BECOME A POLL WORKER: As a Poll Worker, you will help make sure that these straightforward goals are realized. Poll Workers work for every one of Ohio's Boards of Elections to administer the election and having dedicated people like you is the best way for the process to go smoothly and quickly. 

POLL WORKER REQUIREMENTS: Poll Workers are hired by the local Boards of Elections. We will help you through the process, but cannot guarantee that any individual will be finalized as a Poll Worker. Poll Workers must meet the following requirements:
  • Registered to vote in Ohio;
  • Never been convicted of a felony;
  • Available for one day of training by the County Board of Elections
  • Available from 6:00 am-8:00 pm on Election Day November 8.
