Help Republicans Ensure Integrity of the 2018 Mid-Term Elections
Sign Up for FCRC or RPV Republican Pollwatching Training

The Preferred Method of Pollwatching Training. The Fairfax County Republican Committee (FCRC) and its volunteers must actively participate in efforts to ensure the integrity of the election process. Republicans who serve as county Election Officers are the first line of defense against electoral fraud. They provide the direct operational support on Election Day at the polls, and their willingness to serve is greatly appreciated. Republicans who serve as Party Pollwatchers are the second line of defense. Pollwatchers, officially recognized by Virginia law, are charged with observing the process from inside the polling place and with challenging situations where Virginia law is not being followed.

FCRC has supported the Pollwatching effort since 2012 by conducting training classes and offering a companion Virginia Pollwatchers Guide. These vehicles are updated annually to reflect election law changes. The purpose of these efforts has been:
·      To provide Republican volunteers with an understanding of the election process itself and how the Pollwatching role is critical to our efforts to ensure elections are conducted according to the intent and wording of the law.

·      To provide Republican volunteers with a layman’s understanding of the underlying election laws in the Code of Virginia that must be followed at the polls on Election Day.

·      To train our volunteers on the procedures allowing them to respond effectively when they observe the relevant laws are not being followed at a polling place.
Past experience has shown that Pollwatcher training is most effective close to Election Day so that the volunteers are well-prepared and comfortable with the underlying process and the laws. The following Pollwatching training class has been scheduled this week at the FCRC office, 4246 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA 22030:

Wednesday, October 31 – 7:00-8:30 PM

Keith Damon will be the facilitator for the class.

Additionally, if any group or Magisterial District would like a special class for their volunteers, please contact Keith Damon at

If you would like to preview the charts used during the training, please send an email request to Keith. Keith will attempt to meet all of your needs.

A Second Method of Pollwatching Training. The Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) is offering a one-hour online training webinar that will involve viewing slides on your computer and a conference call through either your computer or your phone. The training is a shortened version of FCRC’s training.

Poll Watchers can RSVP for any of the following RPV trainings through EventBrite at

Tuesday, October 30 – 8:00 PM

Saturday, November 3 – 4:00 PM

Sunday, November 4 – 3:00 PM
