There are a number of opportunities to get out the vote (GOTV)

with the 42nd Ward on Election Day!


Poll Watchers – A poll watcher monitors the actions of election judges in a specific polling location all day.  Their job is to mark people off the list of identified voters as they come to vote and report back to the campaign periodically throughout the day.

Poll Closers – Volunteers who close the polls at 7:00pm are allowed to remain in the polling location and are able to observe the consolidating of the results and to obtain an Official Election Results Report after the election judges and the polling place administrator have printed the result tapes needed to complete their duties.

Passers – Our “Passers” are stationed in front of polling locations to distribute sample ballots to voters as they enter the polling place to vote on Election Day. These volunteers are the campaign’s “last contact” with voters before they cast their ballots. Please consider signing-up to serve as a Passer – its retail politics at its best!

Election Lawyers – We have a number of lawyers working on Election Day to watch/monitor all of the precincts and polling locations in the 42nd Ward.  As campaign headquarters gets calls with questions, we will dispatch the attorneys to oversee any abnormalities.  We will also position lawyers to close polls in locations that have typically had issues during closings.
