    The link in the first post, where it shows an ad offering $150 for volunteers to go to polling places and make sure people vote for the right candidates.

    I'll even share it again, so you don't have to scroll all the way up:

    You, yes you, fellow RBR PO poaster, can become a GOP-paid Poll Watcher! Tomorrow, November 6, you can earn up to $150 by monitoring your local polling place to make sure that people vote corre...wait, to make sure people vote for the RIGHT candidate (as opposed to the left one).

    Do your duty as a patriotic, upstanding US Citizen and call today!

    I did this job as as scrutineer one year when I had spare time to do so. There was myself and 2 other scrutineers from the other main parties at this polling site. We were all volunteers.

    no big deal, if it is just scrutineers
    Now I know you said you aren't allowed to TOUCH anything, but can you talk to anybody or are you supposed to be mute? Just wondering if they had something like that here and either R's or D's would be talking to people and slyly suggesting they should vote for "their" party - would that get you kicked out of being a "scrutineer"?

    IMO, you nailed the point in your second sentence. A scrutineer is a volunteer, arranged by the party itself. The concern I had, when reading the link in the OP, was that these are people being paid by a special interest group (that funds one specific party) to ensure that voters elect the right people.

    That, and in the United States, we have the right to a secret ballot, which it sounds like a scrutineer (or a poll watcher) would be in violation of.

    I am 100% convinced the internet and social media are not the salvation to human civility.
