Pro Bono Opportunity for Election Day

Election Protection — led by the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under Law — is the nation’s largest non-partisan voter protection coalition. For the November 8th General Election, Election Protection will be coordinating field programs across the state of Florida.  Our command center for the mobile legal teams will be at FAMU Law School. In addition to the Lawyer’s Committee, we have partnered with the NAACP, Project Vote, Latino Justice, and law students at FAMU.

Field volunteers will respond in-person to problems reported to the hotlines and monitor polling places for issues as they arise during Election Day. Legal volunteers are needed to staff Election Protection field programs in Orlando.

All volunteers are asked to sign up for a several-hour shift on Election Day and complete a 90-minute training (in-person or online). Guidance and training materials are provided to all volunteers. Click on the hyper-linked materials below which include a:

Slide show on the program;

The next training will be at:
Carlton Fields CNL Tower I
450 S. Orange Avenue
Suite 500
Orlando, Florida 32801-3370
On Thursday, November 3rd at 5:30 p.m.
