Candidates, political parties, qualified
organizations of citizens, and organized proponents and opponents of a ballot
proposition may appoint pollwatchers. Pollwatchers must have valid credentials
to remain in the polling place.
The pollwatcher's role is established by
law. Pollwatchers are election observers who aid in ensuring the free and fair
conduct of elections. Pollwatchers may be in the polling place before the polls
open, during the actual voting hours, and after the polls close.
