Be a Voter Protection Guardian!

Lean Left VT is working with voter protection teams in four key states: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Georgia. There are two ways you can volunteer:

1. Make calls or text to recruit poll workers, observers, and other volunteers. See below for the latest phone bank action!
2. Help people vote, literally. Staff a voter assistance hotline.

For more information, check out our new
Voter Protection page! 

WisDems Voter Protection Team
Phonebank Training

During Wisconsin’s 2020 primary, Milwaukee went from having 180 polling places in a normal year to just five. The result? Extremely long lines and wait times and unsafe voting conditions. 

Join us for an information and calling session with the WisDems Voter Protection Phone Bank Team. We’ll learn about their program for recruiting poll workers/observers, phone bankers, and on-the-ground volunteers. And then we’ll make a few calls using the Open Virtual Phone Bank. Support provided by Lean Left’s Resistance Cafe crew.
