The Texas Election Protection team will be recruiting thousands of volunteer nonpartisan poll monitors to help us protect the freedom to vote during the May Primary Runoffs and the November General Election. Our poll monitors interact directly with voters at the polls to answer their questions and connect them with legal resources they need to vote. Sign-up to be a poll monitor here.
Our nonpartisan Election Protection team fights every day to make sure that every eligible voter in Texas can cast a ballot that is fairly and accurately counted. We empower voters with critical information about how to exercise their freedom to vote, send nonpartisan poll monitors to voting sites across Texas, and file litigation when necessary to remove barriers to the ballot box. We work closely with the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and hundreds of other civil rights organizations to answer voters’ questions through the toll free Election Protection Hotline, 866-OUR-VOTE.

Summary of major provisions
Training on major provisions of SB1
We will remain committed to representing those persons and groups that have been historically targeted in Texas, and are still today — including immigrants, people of color, the poor, persons with disabilities, persons accused of crimes, and others. We will use the law as a sword and shield against abuse, discrimination, disenfranchisement and other injustices, demanding accountability from those in power. We are uniquely homegrown and rooted in Texas. That means we are not tethered to any national bureaucracy and entirely focused on advancing equality and justice in our own backyards.
