NYDLC Voter Protection 2022

Welcome to NYDLC's voter protection action page! 

As the official voter protection arm of the New York State Democratic Party, NYDLC coordinates with state and national partners to provide high-quality voter protection programming and strategy. We are actively recruiting volunteers to join us on the frontline of democracy in New York and beyond. Anyone passionate about protecting fundamental voting rights is welcome! You do not have to be an attorney to volunteer with us! 

2022 remote and in-person volunteer opportunities:

NYS Voter Helpline - (1-888-3NY-VOTE)

NYDLC is recruiting helpline volunteers to answer voting questions during the August primary and November general elections. All you need is a computer, a reliable WIFI connection, and the time to commit to two 3-hour shifts. A 1-hour training on New York voting issues and helpline technology is required. Bilingual and multilingual individuals are strongly encouraged to volunteer on our helpline to assist non-English speaking voters. 

Poll Observation

Poll observers assist voters, help ensure that every eligible voter can cast a ballot, and escalate voting issues. NYDLC will train and assign you for shifts at poll sites in the county you are registered to vote in. Training on NY election law and poll observation is required. 

Volunteer Recruitment Phonebanking

Be a force multiplier! Volunteers call volunteers from past cycles and other engaged Democrats to brief them on this year's voter protection opportunities in New York and battleground states. All you need is a computer, a reliable Wifi connection, and the time to commit to 1-hour shifts when it suits your schedule. A 30-minute on-demand training on virtual phone banking software and call script is all that is required. 

Battleground State Volunteer Opportunities

NYDLC recruits volunteers to fill critical voter protection gaps in priority battleground states. This year, NYDLC is helping Pennsylvania, Georgia, and New Hampshire elect Democrats up and down the ballot.
