Election Integrity Early Voting Training: (Phoenix) Maricopa, Pinal, Yavapai Counties
June 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
If you are interested in becoming an official Poll Observer, you will need to sign up for one of the following upcoming training sessions, depending on your county of residence and the date/type of observation.
The RNC’s Election Integrity Counsel for Arizona (Eric Spencer), who will be leading this training to prepare us to be a Poll Observer and qualify to receive the proper credentialing. Keep in mind, however, that the GOP County Party Chair in each county will ultimately issue the credentials all Poll Watchers following the official training.
Training topics to be covered:
- Overview of the Arizona Election Integrity / poll observer program
- Overview of poll observer credentialing & assignment
- Basic election terminology & background
- Overview of voting systems & equipment
- Basics of county elections workflow (in-person early voting, early ballot drop-off, emergency voting, signature verification, early ballot processing, and tabulation)
- Specific procedures & workflow in each county (as applicable to the training date)
- Policies & laws generally applicable to observation
- Issue reporting & escalation procedures
- Wrap-up (questions, credential-issuing, next steps)
These training will be offered simultaneously via ZOOM and in-person. Please click on the appropriate link below. If you cannot attend live, the training will be recorded and made available for future viewing.
Please note, you must decide if you want to volunteer as a Poll Observer during the early voting period or only on the Primary Election Day itself (August 2nd). Observation during the early voting period may involve tasks such as processing early ballots, early ballot signature verification, tabulation of early ballots, voting at in-person early voting locations, and voting at emergency voting locations. Of course, you may sign up for both early voting and Election Day observation opportunities.
Thank you very much for you interest and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
