Kentucky Civic Engagement Voter Protection

This will allow us to flag election violations

Posted October 11, 2022

Background & Context

We are a new non-profit that works with more established local non-profits and allow them to reach all over the commonwealth with election protection needs, including poll monitors.

Immediate Problem

We will have poll monitors on the ground using a form to upload their observations. We will flag issues as appropriate to county clerks for correction, but we will need lawyers to assist with next steps if the issues are not corrected.

Work & Deliverables

Lawyers will handle unresolved issues from the polls. This may include gathering additional information/client intake, identifying litigation steps, and preparing/filing petitions.

Kentucky Civic Engagement Table

With Kentucky Civic Engangement Table, we’re making sure Kentuckians are registered to vote, know how to vote, and know what they’re voting on. We are a a non-profit that helps train and equip local on-profits and unions with election protection and education resources. Because voting is more than checking boxes on a ballot; it’s an opportunity to care for your family and community by voting for fully funded schools, public transportation, better wages, and other issues you care about. To do this, we provide non-partisan voter education resources that make voting easy and accessible for all Kentuckians, including poll monitoring trainings!
