One of the ways a Maryland citizen can help ensure election integrity is to be a Poll Watcher. Poll Watchers observe voting procedures at polling locations on election days and report irregularities. To be a Poll Watcher, you must be a registered voter in Maryland and have a Poll Watcher Certificate.
