Election Protection

The AFT is committed to protecting everyone’s right to vote. Over the last several election cycles, we’ve deployed lawyers and paralegals across the country to assist in election protection on the ground, trained members to serve as poll monitors, and partnered with groups doing the work day in and day out to ensure that all voters can register, cast their ballot and know their vote was counted.

Volunteers provide voter information, document problems encountered when voting, and work with partners and volunteers to identify and remove barriers to voting. Election Protection focuses on the voter—not on the political horse race—and provides guidance, information and help to any American, regardless of their voting choices.

Volunteer Opportunities with Election Protection: Educate. Empower. Protect.

Election Protection—led by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law—is the nation’s largest nonpartisan voter protection coalition. Through the 866-OUR-VOTE hotline and our voter assistance field program, Election Protection helps ensure eligible voters are able to participate in our democracy while collecting data for meaningful reform so that our elections are free, fair and accessible.

Election Protection is currently recruiting volunteers in a number of states across the country to help voters in 2020. Please note that they recruit volunteers in the states where they live and cannot support deployment to other states.
