2020 ACCESSIBLE VOTING (Curbside Monitoring) PROJECT Disability Rights NC Disability Rights North Carolina (DRNC) is a legal advocacy agency that fights for the rights of people with disabilities in North Carolina. DRNC is working to ensure that curbside voting is implemented properly, allowing every eligible voter to cast an in-person ballot while remaining distanced and safe during the COVID 19 pandemic. Law student, paralegal and attorney volunteers observe and document the curbside voting process at early voting sites across the state October 15 - 31 and report issues such as long lines or vehicles not being served. To serve as a curbside monitor and receive pro bono credit, you must be enrolled in law school. All monitoring is contactless, and monitors will be able to select a location at the poll site where they feel safe to observe. Monitors are required to: • Be able to monitor at one four-hour shift during early voting between October 15 - 31. • Have access to a computer/tablet or cell phone with reliable internet access; • Be able to attend a one-hour online training; Travel stipends are available for students and paralegals willing to monitor in counties besides their home or school county. https://forms.gle/otPxyKuLYgLcwy8c6 QUESTIONS?
