Help Save America Be An Election Day Poll Watcher Or Poll Worker

Polling Place
It’s only nine weeks until Election Day and America needs your help.

As our friend Morton Blackwell, Founder of the Leadership Institute, recently told us there’s a critical shortage of conservative poll workers signed up to help monitor voting this year on Election Day.

And as Morton’s email reminded us, you can take action today and become part of the American solution. Sign up to be an election official today. You can even make some money! Election workers can earn between $75 and $350 for their contribution to American democracy on Election Day.

Our friends at iVoter summed up the situation this way: Amid COVID-19, America is facing a critical shortage of poll workers. Even as many states expand access to vote-by-mail and absentee voting options, millions of Americans will continue to rely on in-person voting to cast a ballot.

Here are the simple steps to sign up:

1.    Visit the U.S. Election Committee website here

2.    Select your state and city to get your application

3.    Sign up, and help maintain a fair election!

Want to monitor the Democrats to make sure their Election Day chaos strategy does not succeed? Sign up to be a poll watcher.

As Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, explained in a recent op-ed in the Washington Post:

Democrats are deploying an “army of poll watchers” this November, and for the first time in decades the Republican Party can too. Since 1982, only the Democratic National Committee has been afforded this standard practice, after Democrats sued the Republican National Committee, accusing us of voter intimidation in a New Jersey governor’s race. The case was settled and resulted in a federal court consent decree that curbed Republican ballot-security efforts for 38 years, giving the Democrats a significant advantage in their political get-out-the-vote operations, recounts and absentee and provisional ballot “chases.”


Many think poll watchers are present to deter voter fraud. While that is one of the legitimate reasons for observing the elections process, getting out the vote is equally important. The consent decree prevented the RNC from coordinating with our presidential candidates and state parties in a common practice known as “poll flushing,” in which volunteers can look at precinct lists to see who has voted. That access allows organizers to see where they need to increase voter outreach via efforts such as door-knocking and making phone calls to boost turnout.

The consent decree also prevented the RNC from gathering important real-time information about the elections process that only poll watchers can gather, such as which voters were required to vote provisionally or were even turned away from the polling place. Without poll watchers, the RNC would have no good way to follow up with its voters to help ensure a provisional ballot is later counted, direct confused voters to their correct polling place and document irregularities, such as voting equipment malfunctions and other incidents that are important flash points in a close election or recount.

And finally:

For decades, the DNC has been able to coordinate with Democratic campaigns. In 2012, for example, the Obama-Biden campaign bragged about sending 18,000 lawyers to watch the polls, while the RNC could not send any. Democrats repeatedly fought to extend the consent decree that put them at an advantage.

Conservatives are needed to work at the polls this year, especially as poll watchers.

Poll workers are critical to the success of an election. Having an adequate number of poll workers to staff polling places on and before Election Day can ensure voters receive the assistance they need at the polls and can help provide a positive and smooth voting experience for all. By signing up to be a poll worker, you can help ensure that the 2020 election is fair and free of the chaos Democrats are planning.
