With the 2012 General Election less than 60 days away, your help is needed now more than ever. Across the state we have seen Republicans using every voter suppression tactic they can muster -- firing two Montgomery County Board of Elections members who stood up for weekend early voting, challenging hundreds of voters' registrations, and worst of all, standing with Secretary of State Husted to limit in-person early voting.
WE NEED YOU to help us in our efforts in order to triumph over these forces of suppression. Please consider serving as an in-precinct poll observer on behalf of the Ohio Promote the Vote Election Protection Team. In-precinct observers serve all day on Election Day in an important Democratic precinct -- watching for misapplication of voting rules by poll workers or incidents of voter suppression and reporting such problems to our regional boiler rooms. In-precinct poll observers are our eyes and ears on the ground, and they are vital to making sure that voters' rights as citizens are protected.
Please join us to help ensure that every single eligible vote COUNTS. Send an email to Aubrey Cunningham at firstname.lastname@example.org and volunteer to serve as an in-precinct Election Day Observer. You'll be trained on what to watch for and how to respond. Once we receive your commitment, one of our regional voter protection coordinators will be back in touch with you to ensure you are notified regarding observer training and when you can pick up your credentials.
