There are no “off years” in voter protection, especially now that the Big Lie and the January 6 insurrection continue to motivate our opponents. The MDP Voter Protection team works year-round, every year, to advocate for voters and ensure that all eligible voters can successfully participate in our electoral system.
We are looking for volunteers to help protect voters in the November 2, 2021 municipal elections in many communities across the state. This is a great opportunity to gain voter protection experience for the critical 2022 midterm election and beyond, when we expect the GOP voter suppression efforts to be in full force.
- Help us recruit volunteers to join our voter protection team by calling through lists of former voter protection volunteers. Sign up to attend one of our scheduled phone banks and learn how to recruit volunteers on your own time. Please sign up here to join a scheduled phone bank.
- Be a Poll Challenger on November 2. After being trained, challengers serve as our team’s eyes and ears on the ground at polling locations and absentee ballot counting rooms. They observe the process, and intervene with election officials as needed, to make sure that all eligible Michigan voters are able to cast a ballot and that absentee ballots are properly tabulated. Please sign up here to serve as a Poll Challenger.
- Be a Hotline Volunteer. Volunteers will be trained on the software that allows you to accept calls remotely and answer questions from voters across the state. Please sign up here to serve as a hotline volunteer.
