Description

Position description


When you think about elections, you might think about popular candidates, “I voted” stickers, and all sorts of paperwork and deadlines. But behind the scenes are thousands of election officials in state and local governments who are working hard to make sure ballots are counted and voices are heard.


To serve every community and make democracy work, these officials need 21st-century tools and training. You can help them get it!


As the CTCL Government Services Community Associate, you will grow and engage our network of election officials (what we call ELECTricity) and connect them with resources like our training courses and the Election Toolkit. If you care about democracy, if you believe in the importance of public service, and if you love to exceed expectations, this is the job for you.


Responsibilities


  • Community-building - Understand the professional needs of election officials by building and communicating with the ELECTricity network via email, phone, and in-person outreach


  • Communications - Share industry best practices by researching and writing about election administration challenges and solutions in a regular e-newsletter and blog posts


  • Customer support - Connect election officials with affordable solutions by listening and responding to their questions and requests for tools, training, and other resources


Qualifications


As the Government Services Community Associate, you will have an understanding of CTCL’s mission and demonstrate a proven track record of success. In addition, you will possess many but not necessarily all of the following qualifications:


  • You have strong verbal and written communication skills. Bonus: You have experience using publishing tools like Mailchimp to send emails and Squarespace to share blog posts.


  • You are passionate about helping people solve problems. You know listening is important.


  • You are thoughtful with your time management and you pay attention to detail. This shows in the quality of work you produce.


  • You are enthusiastic about making elections more secure and inclusive. You believe in democracy and care about voting.


  • You are committed to being a high-performing team member where you learn new things and develop new skills.
