Ensure a Free and Fair Election
Sign up to be an Election Protection Volunteer
Poll monitor volunteers will be stationed inside voting locations to observe voting taking place and to aid voters. They will be asked to adhere to the Secretary of State's public health guidelines by wearing a face covering and maintaining a physical distance of 6+ feet when poll monitoring. California Common Cause can mail face coverings to any volunteers who request one.
All poll monitors must complete a 1.5-2 hour Zoom training before being assigned a shift:
- Saturday, October 17th at 10 AM - 12 PM Register here
Tuesday, October 20th at 6 PM - 8 PM Register here
Wednesday, October 21st at 7 PM - 9 PM Register here
They will be closing signups for poll monitoring by Monday or Tuesday, 10/19 or 20, since the last training is on Wednesday, October 21. Joining a training is a requirement and volunteers who miss it will not be able to participate as poll monitors.
Election Day (the highest need) 7 AM - 10 AM or 5 PM - 8 PM
Mon Nov 2 in the morning or from 2-5 PM
