POLL WATCHERS NEEDED FOR NOVEMBER 6, 2018 ELECTION

Contact:  Diane Wood dianewood.ccnm@gmail.com  or  505-379-9470

Every election year the nonpartisan organization Common Cause New Mexico (CCNM), works to help voters cast their vote freely by fielding a team of volunteers “poll watchers” to help answer voter questions, locate their poll and make sure their votes are counted.   CCNM is now recruiting volunteers from all over New Mexico.

Poll watchers are an integral part of CCNM Election Protection project. CCNM recruits lawyers, students and ordinary citizens from across the state organizing them to take part in our democracy and make sure it works for everyone.

After reviewing an informational packet, Poll Watchers will have answers to voters’ frequently asked questions and have the websites and toll free numbers to direct voters for additional assistance.
