Volunteer Opportunities

Voter Helpline Volunteers

The LWV Dane County through the auspices of the Dane County Voter ID Coalition, maintains a free helpline that voters throughout the state can call for assistance with voting questions including information about the absentee voting witness requirement. The Helpline number (608-285-2141) is advertised throughout the state, and many people from outside of Dane County call for assistance. While most calls can be answered by Dane County volunteers, some cannot. These include people seeking rides to or assistance while at the local DMVs to obtain an ID, and also those needing help applying for absentee ballots and getting a witness signature. The Dane County League would like to identify local volunteers who could occasionally provide on-site assistance to voters living in the same region. Volunteers interested in helping should contact Marian Matthews (matthm2@charter.net).



Purge List Phone Bank Volunteers


LWVWI is working with our Wisconsin Voting Rights Coalition partners to coordinate a statewide nonpartisan effort to ensure every voter on the purge list is contacted. We are in need of volunteers who are knowledgeable about the voter registration process and willing to call voters. We will provide training and a call script. If you'd like to volunteer for this opportunity, please sign up here.


Absentee Voter Engagement Volunteers

Starting in July, LWVWI will be partnering again with Wisconsin Conservation Voices to reach out to voters with information about absentee voting via text message through an app called Hustle - We’re looking for some League volunteers to help with this. This is a great opportunity to connect with voters from the safety of your home. 

This opportunity is for people who are familiar with the absentee voting process (you can read up on it here and here) and are comfortable with using apps on cell phones. We will provide training on how to use the app. Once you’re trained, the volunteer schedule is very flexible. If you’d like to volunteer for this opportunity, please sign up here. 

 

Election Observer

Help the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin monitor Wisconsin's elections. We are seeking volunteers to be trained as Election Observers and placed in polling places in specific areas around the state. We provide training, assign volunteers their polling place(s) to observe, and provide volunteers with a reporting form to record their observations. We will do our best to assign you to a location near your home. You don't need to be a League member to volunteer for this -- although we'd love to have you join us!

For the 2020 elections we are focusing the Election Observation Program in three areas:

  1. to be sure there is no disenfranchisement
  2. to monitor the voter experience - including registration and showing ID
  3. to track any problems that can be fixed for future elections

Requirements: You'll need to be available to volunteer for a minimum of 2 hours on Election Day. Election observers will also need a cell phone to use while volunteering and have their own transportation to and from their assigned polling location. There are also opportunities to be a "roving" observer and observe at multiple polling sites. Rovers need to be available to volunteer for at least 4 hours on Election Day.

Training Information: We conduct our election observer training via online webinar. 

Learn more about our Election Observation Program here. If you have questions about this volunteer opportunity contact our Voter Education Manager, Eileen Newcomer, at enewcomer@lwvwi.org or (608)256-0827.

Upcoming elections we're observing:
