Federal Observers in Some Alameda Polling Stations Today

The federal Department of Justice has observers in some Alameda polling stations today.

Acting on a tip, Action Alameda News has confirmed that observers from the United States Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, are present in some Alameda polling stations today. The Justice Department announced last week that it would be deploying more than 780 election observers and department personnel to some 51 jurisdictions nationwide, including Alameda County.

Action Alameda News spoke with one observer at an Alameda polling station who redirected questions to the Justice Department’s press office in Washington, D.C. A spokesperson there would confirm only that observers are in Alameda County and that they move from polling station to polling station.

According to the Justice Department’s press release last week, “the observers and department personnel will gather information on, among other things, whether voters are subject to different voting qualifications or procedures on the basis of race, color, or membership in a language minority group; whether jurisdictions are complying with the minority language provisions of the Voting Rights Act; whether jurisdictions permit voters to receive assistance by a person of his or her choice if the voter is blind, has a disability, or is unable to read or write; whether jurisdictions allow voters with disabilit ies to cast a private and independent ballot; whether jurisdictions comply with the voter registration list requirements of the National Voter Registration Act; and whether jurisdictions comply with the provisional ballot requirements of the Help America Vote Act.”

Riverside County in Southern California is the only other California jurisdiction to have federal observers today.
