These events are being organized by Dr.Lora Chamberlain, in the 49th ward, in conjunction with the campaign.
Voters can come out to the polls but some get turned away – there is more to watch at the polling places than meets the eye.
There will be a short meetup on Wed, April 1st, 7p-9p at the Heartland Cafe, 7000 N Glenwood Ave - for those who have poll watched before and do not need to be trained. Come have a cup of coffee, get credentials, and receive an assignment for a precinct or 2 to observe on election day. We will have election manuals for everyone. The Heartland Cafe is at 7000 N Glenwood Ave, and is one block north of the Morse stop on the Red Line in Rogers Park. I will be near the bar.
If you do not have experience poll watching then Dr.Lora will be training folks on Sat, April 4th, 9:30a-11:30a, (with plenty of time left over for you to hit the campaign trail). Come learn poll watching law and etiquette. What should you be watching for besides voters? How do you report irregularities? How can you assist in helping to get voters voting, and their votes counted? How do you avoid getting in a tussle with the election judges? And much more. Bring your notepads and pens – and if you have a 2015 election judge manual then please bring that too – if not we will have some to give out. This training is at the R Public House, 1508 W. Jarvis, near the Towbar coffee house, 1 block from the Jarvis stop on the Red Line in Rogers Park.
There is no charge for this training, limited to 60 people – please RSVP by joining the FB event page:
