The 58th quadrennial U.S. presidential election will take place on Tuesday, November 8. For some South Carolinians, it may be the first time they’ve ever voted, others may be impacted by recent changes to voting laws, and others still may arrive at their polling place only to be told that they can’t vote. To make sure everyone has their voice heard in our democracy, the ACLU of South Carolina invites you to learn how you can protect the vote by becoming a poll monitor.
Poll monitors serve an important role for voters by observing the election process to see if any violations of election laws occur. In coordination with the non-partisan group Election Protection, join us for this volunteer training to learn how you can protect the right to vote in South Carolina on election day.
Volunteers must:
  • Attend the in-person training in Charleston to learn how to spot common voting problems.  If you are unable to attend an in-person training, please contact: legal@aclusc.org
  • Be 18 or older.
  • Be available for a minimum of 3.5 hours on Election Day.
  • RSVP to legal@aclusc.org
