Subject: IMPORTANT – POLL WATCHER TRAINING for Sept 1-2022 at 9:30 AM – LIMITED ZOOM OPTION
Dear TFRW / TX Republican Grassroots:
With the November 2022 Election right around the corner, we need YOUR participation and leadership in being the front line volunteers at our polling locations! Without well trained poll watchers and election workers in place at every single level of the election process, we open up our counties to SERIOUS vulnerabilities. It is urgent we get a system in place NOW to be ready for the 2024 presidential election!
We are offering Poll Watcher training to all our grassroots volunteers and this training addresses four basic objectives in being a poll watcher-
- Poll Watcher Readiness
- Locations one can serve including Central Count, Signature Verification Committee, Early Voting Ballot Board and all polling locations during Early Voting and Election Day.
- Required documents and what to have ready on your assigned day.
- Escalation Process–Information about Protect the Vote Hotline and Reporting System.
We have completed two In PersonTrainings and have one ZOOM call remaining for you to sign up and attend. This is limited to up to 99 people. PLEASE RSVP in advance of September 1-2022 and we will forward the ZOOM link to you.
Lucy Trainor, RPT Regional Election Integrity Director, will be leading the ZOOM training session.This is timely as Poll Watchers must recertify with the SOS office beginning September 1-2022 for the November election. In addition, Lucy will share additonal trainings available for in person training too.
