Volunteer Poll Observers Needed for Election Day

Wondering what you can do to help with this year’s election?  Join our Ohio Promote the Vote Team as a Poll Observer!  The objective is to ensure that every eligible voter can register, that every registered voter can vote, and that every vote is accurately counted.

Poll observers serve all day on Election Day—watching for incidents of voter suppression, reporting problems to our regional boiler rooms, and collecting data on voters’ experiences at the polls.  Poll observers are our eyes and ears inside polling locations and they are our first line of defense against voter suppression.

Are you a registered voter of Ohio who can commit to spending a full day at the polls on November 4th?  If so, we need your help!

We will provide training opportunities in October and credentials for your entry into the polling locations.  Sign up by visiting
or calling (614) 397-5257.

Have questions?  Call Lindsay Langholz at (614) 397-5257 or email us at

Street Law Seeks Student Volunteers

The Akron Bar Association’s Street Law Committee is seeking a few law students to volunteer at local high schools.  Street Law is a practical elective course taught throughout many high schools in Summit County.

The time commitment will be a couple of hours a month with at least a one-semester commitment.  The volunteer hours may be applied to the pro bono requirement for each student.  Although the time commitment is minimal, it is a valuable opportunity to get involved with the local community.

Please email if you are interested in volunteering or have any questions.
