Volunteer Attorneys Needed on Election Day

The Philadelphia Bar Association passionately supports clean and fair elections.
 Please volunteer as Field Volunteer or Exit Poll Volunteer to help Southeastern Pennsylvania voters during this pivotal election on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Field Volunteers work in teams of two to three members and are assigned to cover specific geographical areas. The team monitors polling place activity, answers voters' questions, helps settle minor disputes and directs more complicated problems to the proper law enforcement authorities. Volunteers are especially needed to cover polls in Philadelphia's four suburban counties.

Exit Poll Volunteers are stationed at polling places to get a true picture of who has a photo ID (and would have been able to show one if required in order to vote) and how many voters truly need it going forward. Accurate information is critical if the Voter ID law is in effect for future elections.

For more information, or to register to volunteer, visit Seventy's website at seventy.org/volunteer or contact Luke McKinstry at lmckinstry@seventy.org or 215-557-3600, ext. 112 or Molly Morrill at mmorrill@seventy.org or 215-557-3600, ext. 107.
