On Tuesday, June 8, many towns across Maine will hold their local elections. Just as we did in November 2020, we'll send out observers to watch democracy in action. If you have a few hours available on Election Day, you can be part of our nonpartisan Observer Corps. We'll train you! 

League volunteers will monitor voting at polling places, watching for issues such as long lines, equipment problems, and inadequate COVID precautions. 

How do you become an election observer for the June 8 election?
