More than 8,000 vote observers and workers in crucial swing states have been hired and trained, according to a report released on Thursday by Tea Party Patriots Action.
Through the recently formed website HelpAtThePolls.com, the organization is still seeking new members.
Over 1,000 new volunteers, according to a Tea Party Patriots Action spokeswoman, have signed up in the previous day.
“This year, TPPA conducted a multi-state election integrity tour recruiting and training poll watchers and poll workers in key battleground states, including Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona,” the organisation stated in a news release on Thursday.
In a statement, Jenny Beth Martin, the honorary chairwoman of the TPPA, outlined the significance of the effort.
“Election integrity is one of the top issues for conservatives, given the controversies over the 2020 presidential vote. One of the most important elements of election integrity is making sure there isn’t a liberal bias among poll watchers and poll workers.” she said.
“In the past, training poll watchers and poll workers was an underserved priority for conservatives. No longer. Tea Party Patriots Action is leading the fight for election integrity,” Martin added.
She mentioned the recent multi-state effort in crucial swing states to train poll monitors and employees.
We are now launching a new website to support our recruitment efforts called HelpAtThePolls.com. With so much at stake in the upcoming two weeks, we will continue this imperative push.
Martin said, “If you’re concerned about the outcome of the election and want to ensure we have honest and transparent elections, go to our website — TeaPartyPatriots.org — sign up to be a poll watcher and we will get you trained and work to help you get placed locally so you can be poll watchers.”
“In the key states — Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania — there are still opportunities for poll watchers. We need more poll watchers. We have more than we had in 2020, but we still have shifts to fill,” she added.

Martin detailed how TPPA has collaborated with a number of organizations, including “Heritage Action, Conservative Partnership Institute, Honest Elections Project and the Voter Reference Foundation at the national level and the Virginia Institute for Public Policy and Georgia’s VoterGA, among others, at the state level.”
“Our goal has been to build permanent election integrity infrastructure in every state and a local election integrity citizen task force in every county,” she stated.

Finite resources are the reason their efforts have been focused on Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. However, work has also been done in Florida, Michigan, North Carolina and Colorado.
Martin argued that it is vital to the political health of the nation for people to be able to trust elections are “free, fair and secure.”
“The good news is, Americans are, by their nature, optimistic and confident. We are self-starters. We don’t wait for someone else to take action, we take action ourselves,” she wrote. CONTINUE READING…
