Election Protection

The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law is leading the 2016 Election Protection operation in Philadelphia and across Pennsylvania. Voters or others with questions about the voting process or who encounter problems on Election Day should contact 1-866-OUR-VOTE. Trained, nonpartisan volunteers will be available to help answer your question or report your issue. The Election Protection Coalition is seeking volunteers to serve as nonpartisan poll observers on Election Day. Register online.

NOTE: Nonpartisan poll observers, including those serving in an Election Protection operation, are not allowed inside polling places in Pennsylvania. Only poll watchers serving on behalf of parties or candidates and with certificates granted by a County Board of Elections can be inside the polls on Election Day. For more on authorized poll watchers, review pages 31 and 32 of the Guide for Election Officials in Philadelphia County.
