Volunteer to ensure that all eligible Americans have the ability to cast a meaningful ballot and have their vote counted.
¡Mil gracias a todos!
With just one week before Election Day, attorneys and community residents from the Central Valley responded to our non-partisan Election Protection Project. Thank you! From Cid and Macedo, Inc. alone, we had 19 volunteers deployed over the course of the day (from 7 a.m. when the polls opened until 8:00 p.m. when they closed) and were able to have continuous presence at 36 polling sites in Fresno County which included rural locations like Orange Cove, Reedley, Sanger, Fowler, Coalinga. We also responded to requests for poll monitors at 5 additional polling sites and sent some of our amazing volunteer attorneys to Tulare County to respond to issues voters were experiencing. Our friends at ACLU-NC had an on-the-ground presence that matched our efforts. Our national colleagues, Common Cause and Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights provided invaluable access to their expertise, training material, and hotline. Thanks to every volunteer, voters in Fresno County and Tulare County were able to exercise their fundamental right to vote!
