🚨 IMPORTANT Reminders🚨
Who and When to Call:
● Issues with harassment/intimidation? – Speak with the Chief Judge or EV Site Supervisor
● Need additional support? Call Site Captain
If you witness any voter intimidation or if someone says they were unable to vote, call or
have the voter call Voter Protection (833-868-3462). If you feel that a situation has
become dangerous, CALL 911. We do not expect this to happen but want you to know that
you always have that protection.

De-escalation:
Be calm but firm and assert your right to be present and Establish clear expectations and
boundaries:
πŸ“Œ Please stop engaging with me, I have a job to do.
πŸ“Œ Stop engaging with me, I don’t feel comfortable with your harassment.
πŸ“Œ You’re encroaching on my personal space, and I need you to move away from my area.
πŸ“Œ I will ask the site supervisor (EV) or the Chief Judge to get involved, please stop
continuing your harassment.
Ask to speak to the Chief Judge, and ask for a specific resolution: β€œThey are continuing to
harass me, I’d like for you to ask them to leave to maintain order.”
Create physical barriers w/ a table, chairs, signs, & a pop-up tent to establish clear
boundaries.

Important Don’ts
🚫 DON’T approach cars in the Curbside Voting area. Once a car has entered that area,
we are not allowed to approach.
🚫 DON’T retrieve slate/info cards or other lit from the trash. Once it’s in the trash, by law
it must stay there.
🚫 DON’T respond to attempts by people to engage you in debate – this distracts you
from greeting other voters. If other people try to challenge or intimidate voters, call
NCDP Voter Protection or tell the Precinct Chief Judge what is happening.
