Description

George Latimer needs your help to protect the rights of Westchester voters on Election Day (Tues. 11/7)!


The New York Democratic Lawyers Council (NYDLC) is working with Sen. George Latimer to organize a voter protection program in Westchester. No prior experience is necessary to join. Please RSVP below so we can include you on the security list!

WHAT:

This training will prepare you to help effectively monitor the Nov. 7, 2017 Election. The program is led by experienced voter protection attorneys who will discuss strategies for addressing the most common voting rights and election administration issues that arise on Election Day, as well as how to identify and address voter intimidation and deceptive election practices.

SKILLS:

Attendees will be equipped with the tools needed to help ensure that all eligible New York voters are able to cast a ballot free from difficulty or intimidation, and have their votes counted accurately.

CLE/credit:

In-person participants who are attorneys will receive 1 free New York State CLE professional practice credit. This course is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys. You are not required to be an attorney to join this effort. For law students, we are happy to assist your efforts to obtain pro-bono credit for every hour you serve as an election monitor.

What should I bring to the training?

To conserve resources, very limited paper materials will be available at the training. Click here to access NYDLC's 2017 Voter Protection training manual. All RSVPs will be sent the training materials electronically before the training. If at all possible, please bring a tablet or laptop so you can follow along.

What will I be asked to do?

Training participants will be asked to commit to monitor either the opening or closing of top priority poll sites on Election Day (Tuesday, Nov. 7) by signing up for a voter protection shift.
