Administrative Assistant for the New Voters Project
About the organization
On Election Day, young people will be the largest and most diverse group of potential voters, with distinct values and ideas. That means, young people can make a huge impact on this Election if they all turn out and vote.
We have momentum. In 2018 we saw a record increase in youth voter turnout. We have also seen candidates running for office talking more about issues that young people care about. But to keep the issues that young people care about at the forefront of our society, we need to help register, educate, and mobilize them to participate in the upcoming Election.
That’s why the Student PIRGs is running the New Voters Project, our non-partisan voter registration and get-out-the-vote campaign on college campuses across the country in Fall 2020.
We’re hiring an Administrative Assistant to help manage the behind the scenes operations to make our voter registration drives successful.
-Establishing and managing systems for tracking voter registration forms from on-campus voter registration drives across the country
-Managing quality control for voter registration drives to ensure accuracy of our voter registration efforts
-Training staff on compliance and administrative processes
-Analyzing data to identify trends improve on the ground voter registration and get out the vote efforts
-Helping to identify and hire organizers for our efforts across the country
The ideal candidate has a strong attention to detail, solid computer skills, experience working with information databases, and some experience with grassroots organizing and an interest in working on a large, non-partisan youth voter mobilization project.
