VOLUNTEERS NEED FOR APALC'S POLL MONITORING PROJECT

Thursday, April 26, 2012 1:36 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
APABA is working with the Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) to conduct a poll monitoring program for the June 5 primary and November 6 general elections. APALC will recruit and train volunteers who will be sent to poll sites across Los Angeles County with high numbers of Asian American voters to make sure that voters are being treated fairly and have access to language assistance, which the county is required to provide. The volunteer monitors go inside poll sites and observe whether translated materials and bilingual poll workers are available, and if problems occur, interact with poll workers to rectify them. APABA encourages members to participate in this program. Los Angeles County is implementing several new language requirements, including assistance to Cambodian, Indian and Thai American voters.

APALC will conduct a training session on Thursday, May 24 for individuals who wish to volunteer as poll monitors. Click here for more information.
