The stakes of the 2022 midterm elections could not be higher, and all eyes are on key Senate, Gubernatorial, and down-ballot races in Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.

Pennsylvania Dems Volunteer Launch

Join Attorney General Josh Shapiro and the PA Dems Voter Protection Team on Wednesday, July 13th for a volunteer program launch! Attendees will be able to plug themselves into critical work for November. This event is open to new and existing voter protection volunteers! 

Poll Observation

Poll Observers monitor and report issues at polling locations on election day. In this role, you will be the eyes and ears of the PA voter protection team, documenting issues, solving problems, and answering questions as they come up.

Early Vote Monitoring

Early Vote Monitors engage voters outside of Boards of Election offices (or satellite locations) to ensure voters can vote in person with a mail-in ballot and report issues to the Voter Protection Team. Early Vote Monitors don’t have to be from Pennsylvania to help!

Sign up for a virtual phone bank to engage with potential volunteers about protecting the vote in Pennsylvania and helping Democrats up and down the ballot!

Voter Assistance Hotline

Voter Assistance Hotline volunteers answer questions about voting and address issues or problems reported by voters, in real-time. Help PA Dems access the information they need to cast their ballot accurately and on time!

DNC RVL Program

The DNC Civic Engagement and Voter Protection Team is recruiting Regional Volunteer Leads (RVL’s) to help state Voter Protection Programs as we head into November. RVLs are experienced super-volunteers handpicked and trained to recruit additional volunteers for state voter protection programs, work with the county board of electors, and add support for state election legislation and litigation. RVL’s dual report to the state and the DNC. RVL prospects are required to go through vet and security training and are expected to work with their states 10 hours per week.

The CEVP Team hosts a virtual recruitment event every Friday at 3:00 pm EDT.
