A group funded by billionaire George Soros has joined forces with a civil rights law organization in Washington, D.C., to take up poll watching duties in 16 states on Election Day.

Common Cause staffers and volunteers are poised to spend Tuesday “assisting voters and monitoring the process at polling places” in 16 states, the group said in an email to supporters, The Daily Caller reported. “Three of our staff attorneys will be working at Election Protection headquarters in Washington, D.C., to help field calls to the … hotline … from voters and election monitors across the country.”

The states that will receive the extra monitoring include California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas and Wisconsin, The Daily Caller said.

Geroge Soros heads up a philanthropic group, the Open Society Foundation, that furthers left-leaning causes.
