Guide to Establishing a Poll Watching Group
Establishing a Poll Watching Group
Online at CountTheVote.org. April 22, 2004. Today, CountTheVote.org posted detailed online instructions for establishing a poll watcher group to monitor elections in counties that use Direct Record Electronic (DRE) voting machines. The guide was refined in the field when it was used to organize 150 poll watchers for DeKalb County's July primary.
"We're hoping groups form in every DRE county to keep the electronic voting disasters to a minimum. We have no idea what's going on inside the machines, but at least we can ensure that the security procedures are followed," said Roxanne Jekot, the computer consultant who researched and developed the guide.
