CLUW Members are Needed on Election Day as Poll Monitors!!
Working women can play an important role in protecting the vote by volunteering to sign up to be poll monitors.
CLUW is partnering with the AFL-CIO Election Protection Program, My Vote, My Right, and your help is needed on Election Day, November 6, 2012.
Ensuring that all eligible voters are able to cast their ballot and that every vote is counted is our top priority. The protection of voting rights at the polls on Election Day will be critical.
Earlier in the season you were asked to volunteer to serve as poll workers, but now poll monitors are needed. Poll monitors who work at the polls on Election Day will help preserve our right to democratic and fair elections.
My Vote, My Right is targeting the following states: Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. If you live in one of those states you can volunteer on line by clicking here and make sure that you include your union and “CLUW” in the spaces provided.
Your name and contact information will be given to the My Vote, My Right local voter protection coordinator,who will be in touch with you with more information about becoming a poll monitor on Election Day and the Election Protection Program efforts in your county as we get closer to Election Day.
Becoming a poll monitor is an important commitment to safeguarding our voting rights. We need union activists working outside the polls on Election Day to ensure that voters in line to cast their ballots receive correct information about voting procedures and their rights.
If you do not live in one of the target states you are still needed as a poll monitor, but you must contact Carol Rosenblatt at the CLUW office at firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest and we will work with the AFL-CIO by connecting you to a community organization (such as Common Cause) in your area that is seeking poll monitors.
