Election volunteers needed on Nov. 4

By |2008-10-30T09:00:00-04:00October 30th, 2008|News|

This election, do more than just vote – volunteer!
People from all backgrounds and all areas are needed to help monitor the polls on Nov. 4 to ensure election integrity.
Be trained as a poll monitor to ensure election fairness at key precincts around the state. Potential problems include the dissemination of misinformation by poll workers, problems associated with voting machines and potential intimidation of voters.
Target areas at this time include Ann Arbor, Benton Harbor, Dearborn, Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Ypsilanti. The ability to effectively monitor these locations and to potentially add others depends on the number of volunteers.
The Michigan Election Coalition, which includes the ACLU of Michigan, Advancement Project, NAACP and others, is coordinating this program.
