Current Job Opportunities
Help the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin monitor Wisconsin's elections. We are seeking volunteers to be trained as Election Observers and placed in polling places in specific areas around the state. We provide training, assign volunteers their polling place(s) to observe, and provide volunteers with a reporting form to record their observations. We will do our best to assign you to a location near your home. You don't need to be a League member to volunteer for this -- although we'd love to have you join us!
For the 2018 elections we are focusing the Election Observation Program in three areas:
- to be sure there is no disenfranchisement
- to monitor the voter experience - including registration and showing ID
- to track any problems that can be fixed for future elections
Requirements: You'll need to be available to volunteer for a minimum of 2 hours on Election Day. Election observers will also need a cell phone to use while volunteering and have their own transportation to and from their assigned polling location. There are also limited opportunities to be a "roving" observer. Rovers need to be available to volunteer for at least 4 hours on Election Day.
Training Information: We conduct our election observer training via online webinar. We will be offering one live webinar on Oct 23rd and then make the recording available for our volunteers to review at their convenience.
