Help APALC Protect Voting Rights During the 2012 Elections

APALC is carrying out poll monitoring efforts during the June 5 primary election and the November 6 general election to make sure that immigrant and limited English speaking voters have adequate access to language assistance on Election Day.  APALC trains volunteers and sends them to poll sites across Los Angeles and Orange Counties to check whether voters have proper access to translated election materials and bilingual poll workers. 

Poll monitors receive a two-hour training before Election Day and volunteer for three hours on the morning of Election Day.  Based on the poll monitoring observations, APALC will prepare reports recommending changes to election practices to promote ballot access for immigrant and limited English proficient voters. 

If you are interested in becoming a Poll Monitor for the June 5, 2012 Primary Election, join us at one of the following trainings:
