The Election Integrity Fund team is coordinating poll challenger efforts in five counties: Genesee, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne. If you cannot join us in one of those EIF groups, please contact your local political party or city clerk to find other poll challenger opportunities in your area.
Election Integrity Fund is a non-partisan 501(c)4 organization founded in 2020 by a group of concerned Michigan citizens dedicated to ensuing free and fair elections in Michigan.
In addition to becoming an Election Integrity Fund volunteer and reviewing the Training Video posted at our website: https://electionintegrityfund.org/training, you can attend one of our ongoing live training presentations listed on that same training page, and you can review the Michigan state elections division document called The Appointment, Rights and Duties for Election Challengers and Poll Watchers linked here:
Please send your request for information or interviews to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please reply to the email that you received from EIF with your preferred location. We will update your records accordingly.
At this point in time, we expect that there will be poll challenger shifts that we can choose to attend. The biggest and most important shift is Election Day, Tuesday, November 3rd from 7 am until 10 pm. However, there will also be shift opportunities for Monday, November 2nd from 10 am until 8 pm, Tuesday, November 3rd from 10 pm until 6 am (overnight shift) and Wednesday, November 4th from 7 am until 6 pm. These are expected time shifts but again at this time everything is still very fluid. We will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
Leave when you must; stay as long as you can. It is up to you. Just remember – if you leave, you cannot come back in to the Counting Board.
We suggest that you contact Bill Lethemon at 248-736-6101 for specific poll challenger questions as he has served as an election worker/inspector and also as a challenger on many occasions (please leave a message if your call goes to Bill’s answering machine).
Our group leaders plan on organizing a specific meeting location which we will coordinate with everyone prior to Election Day.
Being as we will not be able to address every single potential issue, we are attempting to prevent “big picture” issues from occurring. For example, if a Poll Worker calls a Poll Chairman to their table that would be an instance where we would ask that you walk up to the table and listen to the details of the Poll Worker’s inquiry OR you can signal your Poll Challenger Group Leader and ask for assistance.
You will be provided with a note card in your Credentials Packet – Please take detailed notes of the issue that you are concerned about (even if you are unsure about the process or the issue). It is better to provide more information rather than less, in case we need to initiate legal action in the future. REMEMBER – Who, What, Where, When, Why and Time, Date, Table, Poll Worker, Resolution, Results!
We will be sending instructions regarding the Credentials Packet via email. Worst case, your credentials will be given to you on the morning of your assignment at the designated location where your group team will be meeting.
Some of the big picture issues might be:
· No Poll Book on the table
· No Poll List on the table
· Poll Workers writing in names on ballots
· Ballots containing White-Out on them
NOTE: We will “fine tune” this list of big picture issues as needed. Please refer to the FRAUD tab on the home page of https://electionintegrityfund.org website for more examples of big picture issues.
The city clerk sets the “rules” but remember, America is a constitutionally limited Republic where “all political power rests with the people” so we must bravely, yet respectfully defend our Liberty and the integrity of our elections process.
Election Integrity Fund does not have a final answer to this question.
You may bring a chair to sit on, food to eat, water to drink. Please wear (if possible) a white shirt or top and black trousers, pants, or skirt. Please do NOT wear anything that shows your support (or disdain) for any political party, candidate, issue or mandate.
Election Integrity Fund has made the decision to only focus on the Absentee Ballot Counting Boards in these five specific counties for this upcoming election because we believe that this is where the most potential for fraud exists.
The state of Michigan Poll Challenger 12 page document has been updated in October of 2020 to say that you must wear a mask at all times while in the Absentee Ballot Counting Board location where you are assigned. This is a very contentious issue, with people on both sides of the issue, so please use your best discretion if you believe that wearing a mask is dangerous to your ability to breathe.
