SeniorLAW Center is proud to partner with the Philadelphia Bar Association and the Committee of Seventy to recruit 1,000 attorneys to volunteer on Election Day. Use your special skills and knowledge to help protect the right to vote.

Volunteer Attorneys are Needed on Election Day Register for Oct. 31 Training Session

The Committee of Seventy
Non-Partisan Voter Protection Program
General Election, November 6, 2012

The Philadelphia Bar Association passionately supports clean and fair elections.  Please volunteer to help Southeastern Pennsylvania voters during this pivotal election.

Field Volunteers

Field Volunteers work in teams of 2-3 members and are assigned to cover specific geographical areas. The team monitors polling place activity, answers voters' questions, helps settle minor disputes and directs more complicated problems to the proper law enforcement authorities. Volunteers are especially needed to cover polls in Philadelphia's four suburban counties.

Exit Poll Volunteers

Exit Poll Volunteers are stationed at polling places to get a true picture of who has a photo ID (and would have been able to show one if required in order to vote) and how many voters truly need it going forward. Accurate information is critical if the voter ID law is in effect for future elections.


When: Tuesday, November 6, 2012. The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sign up for a morning (7:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.), afternoon (11:30a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) or evening (4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.) shift.

Training: A one hour training session for field volunteers will be held at the Philadelphia Bar Association, 1101 Market Street, 11th Floor on Wednesday, October 31 at 8:30 a.m. Other training session dates are available when you sign up to volunteer. Exit poll volunteers will receive separate information about training.

How: For more information, or to register to volunteer, visit Seventy's website or contact Luke McKinstry at or 215-557-3600, ext. 112 or Molly Morrill at or 215-557-3600, ext. 107.
