Poll Challenging (volunteers needed)

A couple people followed up on my comment about Poll Challenging and asked for more details. Poll Challenging involves being inside the polling place and helping make sure that people who have a right to vote do not have that right interfered with - that if they are not at the right polling place, they are helped and not discouraged, that nobody is being influenced inside the polling place, that people are voting by themselves and not being coached. Mostly, you just observe. If someone (especially someone of the opposing party) is harassing someone, or it seems that someone who ought to be able to vote is being unfairly denied that right, you might get involved.

If you'd like to be a Poll Challenger on behalf of Democrats, you need to attend one of the following training sessions at the Pittsfield Admin. Building, 6201 W. Michigan Ave, Ann Arbor, 48108.

Sunday, October 29 from 2-5 PM
Wednesday, November 1, 6:30-9:30 PM

Registration is appreciated, but not required. Please email Brenda Anderson and let her know which session
you plan to attend.
