POLITICAL OBSERVER PROTOCOL
Political Observer Protocol A.R.S. §16-590:
Allow for a political observer and an alternate to be appointed by the County Chairman of each party that has a candidate on the ballot for each polling place in the County.
In an effort to carry out this law the Graham County Elections Department feels it is important to establish polling place protocol for Voters, Election Board Workers and Observers.
This will insure that questions or issues on Election Day will be handled as quickly and efficiently as possible with minimal disruption to the voter and Election Board.
If you have been appointed as a Political Observer you MUST have in your hand the signed appointment when entering the Polling Place to show the Inspector, Marshall or other member of the Election Board. You will be issued a badge at the polling place. If you do not have the form you will be instructed to contact your Party Chairman.

POLLING PLACE ETIQUETTE
We ask that you conduct your observing as quietly as possible. You may not enter any voting booth unless you are in your precinct and are there to mark your ballot.
While you are allowed by law to observe the election processes and areas where ballots are being handled you are not allowed to touch any ballots or voting equipment.
