One of the activities citizens can carry out at election time is to become poll-watchers. This activity simply involves being present at the polling places on Election Day to insure that elections are conducted fairly, by watching the process by which people sign in at the polls. This activity is a form of public service that involves some simple training and yet goes a long way to protect your rights and those of your fellow citizens as they exercise their Christian duty to vote. Contact your Board of Elections for more details on how you can sign up for this activity.
As our bishops have told us — and as historical experience verifies — every vote counts. You can help assure that every vote counts fairly.
