Election Observation Training Resources from LWVUS and the Carter Center

LWVUS, in conjunction with the Carter Center, created two online courses to support election observation volunteers and to guide election observation programs. 

The two courses, Volunteer Observer Training and Core Team Election Observation Training, are geared toward different audiences. The former is meant to be used by election observation volunteers, while the latter is meant to be used by more experienced volunteers, leaders, and staff who are setting up election observation programs in their states or localities.

These materials were developed after the Carter Center and LWV Ohio executed a pilot election observation training program in 2016, and were reviewed extensively by LWV Wisconsin.
