Become a Vote Defender

This fall, North Carolina holds the first big election with the controversial voting law changes adopted last year. We need your help to provide information and help stop voter suppression. Will you join us in this effort?

Become a Vote Defender! Ignite NC, Democracy NC, and our local partner groups are co-hosting trainings across the state.for volunteers who want to be poll monitors at selected precincts on Election Day. Teams of volunteers outside the polling place will wear t-shirts, answer basic questions, and document voters’ experiences through an Exit Survey. In addition, volunteers will direct voters who experience a problem or have a complaint to a Hotline staffed by election experts.

You don’t need to be an expert to be a Vote Defender Volunteer. But you do need to attend a training! You’ll learn about how to conduct the exit survey and record complaints, receive your t-shirt and other materials, and be teamed up with another volunteer.

Join us in the on-the-ground fight against voter suppression!
