On Election Day, Democratic volunteers are needed at Chesterfield’s voting precincts to:
- Deliver and “plant” our candidates’ signs at polling places before the polls open
- Set up our oversized Democratic Ticket sign at least 40 feet from voter entrance – first shift
- Greet voters before they enter the polling place
- Help voters with problems and contact Voter Protection as needed
- Assist disabled voters with getting help from Officers of Election for curbside voting
- Request voter turnout numbers from Officers of Election
- Remove Democratic Ticket sign and any candidate signs left behind – last shift
If you’re available and able to help on Election Day, please sign up using the links below. Precincts are being released in order of priority. Thank you!

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE RELEASES STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF PROTESTERS
“We stand with the protesters who are gathering in the names of George Floyd, Ahmaud Aubery, Breonna Taylor and so many other black lives lost to rampant and systemic racism. Too many of your voices are silenced, but we, the Chesterfield Democratic Committee, see, hear, and support you. We will not stand by in silence as injustice occurs around us. We demand the arrest of all officers involved in the killing of George Floyd.
We are at a place in our history where we all must speak out for change. We stand with our brothers and sisters of color in their fight for true equality and fairness.
We commit to
educating ourselves on the issues facing our black community
supporting the lead of organizations working for the black community
providing opportunities for our Democratic leaders to engage and work with the black community
advocating for legislative changes
taking actions to improve the lives of the black community
Black Lives Matter. We will be a vocal and an active part of the solution. That is our commitment.”

Apply to be an Officer of Election in Chesterfield
Help make voting safer for your neighbors.
If you are interested in applying to be an Officer of Election to work INSIDE a polling place at the November 3, 2020 election, please fill out the Officer of Election Interest Form, and the Registrar’s team will be in touch with you to schedule training. Our Registrar could really use the help right now during the COVID-19 crisis as a lot of the current volunteers are members of high-risk groups and should not be in contact with the public at this level. There WILL be precautions taken – distancing practices, gloves, masks, etc. If you have any questions, send 1st Vice Chair Becky Conner an email at email@example.com.
