HOTLINE & CALL CENTER VOLUNTEERS
Lawyers and law student volunteers are needed to help staff our nonpartisan call center on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, 2016, and during early voting (October 17-November 7). Volunteers will be trained on Colorado election law and will be equipped to handle legal and other questions related to voting, polling places, ballots, and related issues from voters around the state. Please join us! More Info (No link provided - get from Emily)
For more information about volunteering with Just Vote! Colorado, please contact Caroline Fry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers will survey Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPCs) in their community to ensure they are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ACA), as well as other regulations. Volunteers from all around the state are needed for this position, and no experience is necessary. More Info/Sign Up
Alert--New York City has insufficient poll workers. Unless more people sign up we will have long waiting lines, which can disenfranchise those who are unable to wait for hours.
To be a poll worker in New York City, sign up at pollworker.nyc/2016. You must be a registered voter in New York City. Mandatory four-hour training classes will be conducted in October. The pay is $200 per election, plus $100 for training if you pass the test and work at least one election. There's a $75 bonus for working two elections during the next year. Our city also needs Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Bengali, and Hindi interpreters.
In New York City, the biggest election-day bottleneck may be where a poll worker has to look up each voter's Assembly District and Election District, the two numbers that determine the voter's sign-in table. You can bypass this bottleneck by arriving at your correct poll site with the correct information written on paper or in a cell phone. Get the info at nyc.pollsitelocator.com and do it BEFORE election day to avoid computer overload, and share this advice with other voters.
