Election Observer Training

In support of open, transparent and accessible elections, each year the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office offers observer training for the major political parties and the public.  This training provides an overview of the elections process and an introduction to the basic rules of conduct expected of all observers. 

To ensure adequate opportunity for individuals to attend training prior to observing, two training times have been scheduled for 2015 – one prior to the 2015 Primary and one prior to the 2015 General Election.  In order to have official observer status, an individual need only attend one session prior to observing.  While attending observer training is not a requirement of observing any elections process, training participants are allow potentially freer access to observe processes.

In order to gauge interest and accommodate participants, please RSVP with the day you plan to attend to Torie Waters at torie.waters@snoco.org.  Observer training dates are:

Session 1
Monday, July 13, 2015
10:00am – 12:00 pm

Session 2
Monday, October 12, 2015
10:00am – 12:00 pm

Trainings will be held in the Jackson House Elections Processing Center, 1818 Pacific Ave, Everett.
