FW: Poll Watcher Training



My name is Robert Ackerman.  I am a member of the Republican Party of Hampton and am working with Carl Anderson in the effort to coordinate poll watchers/workers for the extremely important upcoming election.

First, let me Thank You for your volunteering.

I am contacting you because you have signed up to work as either a Poll Watcher or Poll Worker.

If you have already received the attached email, I apologize for the duplication, but this is too important to risk people not being notified.

As it says, even if you have already gone to the ORCA site and done the on-line training, please make every effort to attend the Local training on the 23rd..

We would also like to ask each of you the following:


1         Do you have a particular precinct you would prefer to work at?

2         If needed to guarantee adequate coverage of all precincts, would you be willing to work a different precinct that your preference?

3         Have you gone to the ORCA site and done the on-line training?  If not, the website is listed in the attached email.

4         Do you have a smart phone? This is being asked because of a database that will potentially be used on election day to help track data.


I know this is somewhat short notice, but time is of the essence.

I will be attempting to contact you by phone over the next few days.  My number is 757-239-0876, so that you will know that I’m not just another Robocall.


My thanks in advance for your response to this email.
