Voter Protection 2016

The 2016 election is upon us this November 8th. Common Cause Massachusetts will be working to ensure that voters across the state can fairly and freely access the ballot box.

We can’t do it without you. Throughout October, we'll be conducting poll monitor trainings. On election day, groups of trained monitors will be sent to polling places to help voters know their rights and to let them know about the Election Protection hotline.

We'll be putting trained poll monitors on the ground at polling places where hotly-contested races exacerbate the chance of long lines, and other complications.  We’ll also be in states where there may be confusion about the voting process.  Poll monitors will provide information, troubleshoot problems, and report bad practices to our teams to resolve them with election officials.
