Volunteer to Help Cure Ballots!

No time to waste.
There are still local races waiting to be called that need these ballots to be counted.

If you voted absentee in AZ, GA, MI, NV, PA, or WI, make sure your ballot is counted using links at the end of this document.

This document is being maintained by a few individual volunteers. It lists all volunteer opportunities that we can find, prioritized by key states. You do not have to live in the same state to cure ballots by phone. If you have events to share, or additional ideas or questions, please contact us using this form.

What is Ballot Curing?

Ballot curing is the process of contacting voters who have cast votes but their votes have not been counted due to issues like missing or mismatched signatures. Ballot curing involves contacting the voter and notifying them their ballot is currently being rejected. We then walk them through the specific process in their county to allow them to prove their identity and get their ballot accepted. The most common issues we cure are:

  • Voter cast provisional ballot
  • Mail-in ballot rejected due to signature mismatch
  • Mail-in ballot rejected due to no signature
