Vote Monitors in or near New Hampshire who can make it on Jan 10, 2012 to one of the NH hand-counted towns:


Before the Counting Starts

To volunteer to be a NH Vote Monitor - Call our  24 hour "Watch The Vote 2012" message line at 513-878-0378 and leave a message with your name, phone, and email; someone will get back to you shortly to coordinate what town you go to in order to monitor the vote.  (We need to use energy well and avoid duplicate Vote Monitor Teams at one hand-counted polling place, with no Vote Monitor teams at another polling place.) -- Also, join our Facebook Page for NH Vote Monitors which is found in this way:

This facebook page hooks you into everyone else in the project.


During The Counting

Then, on NH Primary night, when the Vote Monitors (you) finish helping to count the votes at their assigned polling place, -- or finish watching the ballot count if they (you) were not chosen as a counter -- you will notice that after the town crier (required by NH law) will read the vote totals for each candidate aloud, and post the official tally sheet in public view for a time. (If you are not chosen to participate in the ballot counting, you can stand behind the rope which is six feet away, and watch and listen to the people counting the votes. If you cannot see or hear well enough, ask the judges at the polling place how you can see or hear better. Watching the vote is only effective if you actually see and hear what the vote counters are doing. Report to us if there is a problem. The idea is that the PUBLIC can witness the vote counting to make sure it is correct.


Recording the Vote Totals

You are recording NH vote totals results in three ways:

1. By hand-writing the vote totals for the 7 GOP Presidential candidates on your own piece of paper.

2. By taking a photo of the official vote tally sheet, if possible.

3. If possible, by also taking video of the proceedings.


Reporting Your Vote Totals to WatchTheVote2012

You are Reporting Your Vote Total Results to WatchTheVote2012 in these three ways:

1. You are going to call the WatchTheVote2012 Hotline at 513-878-0378 and leave a message including your town location, your name, your phone number, and THE VOTE RESULTS for each Presidential candidates. (By NH Primary day, you may also have the phone number of a live person at WatchTheVote2012 to call your results to, if you wish to do that. But if you don't have the number of a live person, use the 24 hour WatchTheVote2012 Hotline above to leave your message, OR you can call your results into the conference call line to reach live people on NH Primary night at 641-715-3200, Pin: 1064662#.)

IF we can -- all together -- witness what the real count is in the 127 hand counted towns -- then the 140 or so computer "counted" towns better not be too far off of the hand-counted totals. (Of course, to repeat, in NH each computer-counted town has the option to pull the ballots out of the computer and double-check them by hand on the spot -- which is what every town SHOULD do.
