    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 administrators in state and local governments who are working hard to make sure ballots are counted and voices are heard.

    U.S. election officials want to administer elections where every eligible voter can easily and securely cast their vote, but they often need support to achieve these outcomes. To serve every community and make democracy work, election departments need a new set of values and standards for excellence.

    As Program Associate, you will help build a new set of standards that make explicit what high performance looks like in U.S. election administration. Think Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, but for local election departments. This is big, bold work at the forefront of election administration, so an entrepreneurial spirit will help you succeed. To build the standards and support their rollout, you’ll collaborate closely with internal teammates as well as external partners, including state and local election officials. You’ll report to the Program Manager in the Government Services department.

    Communicate learnings and updates – Create reports and deliver presentations to team members, election administrators, partner organizations, and the Standards Board. Facilitate conversations in a way that is engaging and informative.

    Commitment to priority audiences – Ensure CTCL programs for election departments prioritize voters with limited access to the election system. This includes voters who are newly eligible, have limited English proficiency, live with disabilities, or are from communities that are impacted by the digital divide or historical disenfranchisement due to race.

    Job requirements
    If you’re not familiar with elections or election administration, that’s okay — what’s most important are your skills as a coordinator and communicator. Even if you aren’t sure if you’re qualified but are excited about the position, we encourage you to apply!

These systems include goal-setting, evaluations, staff retreats every 6 months, and weekly 1:1 calls. While we maintain these structures, we strive to adapt and be responsive to the changing needs of election officials.
