The Obama for America re-election campaign is gearing up and looking for
talented, enthusiastic, loyal and hard-working folks to take on LEADERSHIP
positions across the country. If you believe you fit the qualifications
(see below), or know of someone who does, please respond to this email with
your and/ or his/her resume!
Organizing for America is now taking applications for State Operation
Vote Directors positions to work in various states as part of Operation
Vote. Operation Vote drives our strategy to mobilize and engage core
demographic groups – Women, Latinos, African Americans, Young Americans,
AAPI, LGBT and others – in support of President Obama and Democrats up and
down the ticket.
State Operation Vote directors must be able to develop and execute a
metrics-based constituency mobilization and communications plan that
focuses on turning out key demographic groups in support of President Obama
and Democrats up and down the ticket. Working with other senior leadership,
the SOVD will develop and manage programs aimed at increasing the vote for
core demographic groups. There will be a heavy emphasis on field
mobilization efforts. All mobilization programs will be executed by Field
staff, in coordination with Operation Vote Directors. Other
responsibilities potentially include but not limited to: representing Our
Movement or The President’s Grassroots Organization at community events and
meetings, speaking on the record with press in consultation with the OFA
Communications Director, and serving as an in-state contact person for
local campaigns, allied organizations, and community leaders.
Organizing for America is a project of the Democratic party in the state
in which the SOVD will be employed. Applications and resumes for the
position of SOVD may be shared with Obama for America. Once hired, the SOVD
will report to the State General Election Director but may engage with the
Obama for America Operation Vote leadership as needed.
