HOW TO SUBMIT An observer REPORT
The Observers Collaborative recently updated the Observer Report form in order to create a more streamlined and secure data collection process. Observers received instructions and a link to the new submission form in early February 2024. If you have questions or need the submission instructions or link re-sent, please contact: email@example.com
NOTE: Observers must complete the Observers Collaborative training program prior to submitting Observer Reports.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER OBSERVER
Observers attend public meetings in Licking County, track important issues, and make our reports public, all in the service of promoting civic understanding and transparency in government. We are non-partisan, and we do not advocate for positions or proposals. Our project is a collaboration between the League of Women Voters of Licking County and the Denison University Reporting Project. Observers complete a series of training videos, commit to ethical guidelines, and submit timely reports of meetings observed to a review team.
