Voter Protection Hotline Volunteer
Minnesota voters call the DFL Voter Protection Hotline – 833-DFL-VOTE – for a wide variety of reasons, from asking for information (e.g., how to register to vote, where to vote, when to vote), to reporting incidents (e.g., long waiting lines, lack of ADA compliance, inappropriate demands to see identification, etc.), and everything in between. We need volunteers who will train on these different scenarios and take calls from our call center located at DFL Headquarters in Saint Paul. The hotline is accepting calls now and will continue doing so through 2021.
No previous experience is necessary. You will receive training, materials, and supervision while at our call center. Training times and locations TBD.

- You must have your own transportation to the call center, located in Atlanta
- You must have access to a smart phone and laptop that you can use while taking calls
- You must sign up online in advance for shifts at the call center
- You must go through on-site training before you begin taking calls
This job is for you if:
