Election Protection for Attorneys: How to Help Voters in 2020

1h 15m

Created on September 25, 2020





This program will survey the problems most likely to disenfranchise vulnerable voters in the 2020 election and avenues to overcome them, focusing on nuts-and-bolts voting mechanics such as voter registration, voting by mail, long lines, voter ID, provisional ballots, early voting, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on voters and election administrators.

Presented by Doug Lindner, National Voter Protection Director of the Voter Protection Corps, this program will benefit legal professionals serving as poll workers, poll observers, hotline volunteers, election administrators, or in any other capacity related to facilitating the voting process.

Attendees who do not yet have a role to facilitate the voting process in the upcoming election are encouraged (but not required) to serve their communities as poll workers, and can sign up to do so at "voter-protection.org/be-a-pollworker".

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify the key issues causing problems for voters
  2. Discuss the legal and governmental structure of election administration
  3. Assist voters facing common problems
  4. Consider opportunities to get involved in facilitating the democratic process in your community
