Whether it means going around the corner to observe at your polling place, or driving down to Norwalk to observe the vote count...
It's time to make that commitment. If the machines aren't working, if the poll is closed, if a voter's rights are being denied, we need to know!
1. Go to and sign up. OR, email us at Let us know that you are interested.
2. Read the information on the web site, especially the Poll Monitor Instructions. That will tell you what to look for. Whether you are Pollworking, Poll Monitoring, or Video the Vote, the information applies.

3. You will need to download and print out some Election Incident Reports. The long form will work well for Poll Workers, the short form will work well for folks who are monitoring several polling places.
4. Please plan to listen in on our POLL MONITOR TRAINING CONFERENCE CALL(S). We will be giving last minute important information, as well as going over the material and answering any questions you might have. The times and numbers are in the column to the right.
Don't just vote, make sure it's counted!

5. There are three videos offered by the Registrar's office. Click on the link, go to the bottom left of the screen. You'll see how a polling place should be set up, how an Inka Vote is supposed to work, and all about ballot inspection.
It takes ONLY around 40 minutes.
