Election Protection 2019

Spots are now open to sign up as an Election Protection volunteer for the Chicago municipal election on Tuesday February 26, 2019. Please check back in March for information to volunteer during the suburban municipal elections on April 2. You can come back to volunteer for multiple elections.

Election Protection is the nation’s largest nonpartisan voter protection coalition. Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights leads local efforts for Election Protection.

You can sign up for one of two types of volunteer opportunities:

Field Volunteers [OPEN]

Field Volunteers work in teams to monitor multiple polling places in the city of Chicago. They are assigned to polling locations based on community needs. Field Volunteers must be registered to vote in Illinois.

Shifts are 7 hours, and all volunteers must attend an in-person training or watch a training video online.

Call Center Volunteers [FULL]

Call Center volunteers are stationed at our downtown Call Center and answer calls to our 866-OUR-VOTE hotline.

Shifts are 4 hours, and all volunteers must attend an in-person training or watch a training video online.

As a nonpartisan organization, we do not support or oppose any political parties or candidates. Candidates are not eligible to volunteer.
