Become a Presence

Always go to in twos. Witnesses!

Remember: You Build a Permanent Infrastructure



Make an appointment with your local Board of Elections Director. Let that person know who you are. How can we support your tasks? Where do you need help? Volunteers?


Get to know your local Republican Board of Elections members. How can we support you? What are the current issues we need to address? Have coffee. Exchange phone numbers. Stay in close touch.


Get on an email list from the local BOE to be notified of the upcoming meetings. Request an Agenda from the BOE. (Warning: The will probably send a generic/non-descript agenda. This is where your relationship with your BOE member is vital. Know what to expect at the upcoming meeting.


Request notification for Observation of Voting Machine Set-Up and Testing


Read the minutes of the last BOE meeting: learn the issues that have been addressed (or not) by the office in past meetings.


Attend every local BOE meeting. No less than two. Have a phone or in-person meet with others on your task force to go over what to expect/hear.


After the meeting is concluded, remain, raise your hand and ask question about what you just heard at the meeting. (Ex: What is the chain of custody for seals on absentee ballots? Where do you store them? What security measures do you use? Are you taking funds from any 501c3s?) (Know that answer!)


Make the commitment that every decision made by the election office will be made in the presence of one or more representatives of your local Election Integrity Team.


Only by being ever-present at the election office and board meetings can you see and learn things.
