Subject: Vollunteer Election Monitors Needed for Detroit, August 6

The Michigan Election Reform Alliance is seeking volunteers to be trained and deployed at Detroit voting precincts and count boards on Election Day, August 6, 2013. The training will take about two hours and take place at the Detroit Public Library.

MERA Monitors will have the authority of election challengers under Michigan Election Law. Their main purpose is to monitor and if necessary, work to correct, election procedures to ensure the security and integrity of the vote count. MERA is a non-partisan, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization.

Monitors should be registered Michigan voters and willing to work a two hour shift or longer on August 6. The most important shift will take place from 6 p.m. until the close of all election day processes.

MERA welcomes all potential participants, regardless of political or party affiliation. To volunteer or for more information,  please contact Jan BenDor, MERA State Coordinator, at 734-484-1744, or email to jan@bendor.org
