Common Cause is specifically targeting areas where competitive races are taking place and voters have historically faced barriers to voting.

Prior to Election Day, volunteers will need to register for a 90-minute training where they will be provided with all the information and tools necessary to be a poll monitor. After volunteers complete their training, poll monitors will take a two-hour shift at a polling place in their community on Election Day.
