Voting is a fundamental right, and our pursuit of a truly representative democracy demands that we engage every eligible voter to register and vote in November, particularly members of underrepresented communities across the state.

Voter Registration Canvassers and Team Leaders will assist citizens in successfully and safely completing their voter registration applications. Canvassers will engage with the public in a friendly, professional, and most importantly safe manner and answer any questions they may have.

 

Team Leaders will be responsible for managing a small group of canvassers out in the field. Team Leaders serve as the eyes and ears of the campaign, training canvassers and reporting to directors. Team Leaders will ensure everyone in their group is set up in the correct place and with all of the necessary materials each day, and they will check in with their team throughout the day to evaluate skills and confirm proper health and safety measures are being followed. Team Leaders are responsible for debriefing with their team at the end of the day and ensuring proper data reporting.

COVID-19 has altered the political landscape, but one thing remains the same – we will need to have in-person conversations with people to register a lot of them to vote. Thankfully, we can do this low risk. We will provide PPE and substantial health and safety training, and we have developed a canvassing protocol that will allow us to do this critical work while keeping our staff and the people in our communities safe.

We are hiring immediately. These positions will run through the October 14 registration deadline, with opportunities to potentially extend through the Election and beyond.

 

Locations: Immediate priority is in Milwaukee/Waukesha, Madison, Kenosha/Racine, Green Bay, Appleton, and Beloit, and we will be hiring for other locations in the state as the campaign expands.
