The Committee of Seventy needs nonpartisan volunteers in Philadelphia to help in its Election Day Oversight Program on April 22. Seventy assigns “citizen teams” to specific voting locations throughout the city to provide assistance to voters, document complaints and help solve Election Day problems. Volunteers may work just a few hours in the morning, afternoon or evening, or all day. Beforehand, training sessions are offered for all participants, and all volunteers receive formal identification for Election Day purposes.

To register online and to sign up for a volunteer training session, please go to or call Nina Bloch at 215-557-3600 ext. 124 or
