Volunteer to be a Poll Monitor:
The Texas Civil Rights Project trains Texans to serve as Election Protection poll monitors, who are able to answer questions and solve problems for voters during the election at polling sites throughout the state. TCRP also trained and deployed 100 attorneys and legal experts to five voter-help-centers in Austin, Dallas, Houston, the Rio Grande Valley, and San Antonio to directly take questions and concerns from voters and advocates in need.
