Election 2020 Volunteer Opportunities

Recruiting Volunteers for Nonpartisan Election Activities

ACS is recruiting lawyer and law student volunteers for nonpartisan activities this election year to help make sure we have a safe, fair, delay-free election for all voters. View volunteer opportunities available with our partner organizations below.

Volunteer to Be a Poll Worker

Easy, safe, effective voting that gets counted is a cornerstone of a functioning democracy. And poll workers are the folks who make that reality for their neighbors — they’re the unsung heroes of elections, and America needs them now more than ever. You do not need to be a lawyer or a law student.

ACS is partnering with Power the Polls to recruit volunteers to address the critical shortage of poll workers in jurisdictions around the country.

Will you pledge to serve as a poll worker right now? When you sign up, you’ll get connected to your local election office so you can learn more about serving as a poll worker.

Volunteer for Election Protection

ACS is partnering with the national, nonpartisan Election Protection coalition to ensure that all voters have an equal opportunity to vote and have that vote count.

Election Protection provides voters from coast to coast with comprehensive information and assistance at all stages of voting – from registration, to absentee and early voting, to casting a vote at the polls, to overcoming obstacles to their participation. Lawyers and law student volunteers are needed to help staff hotlines and on-the-ground efforts.
