Overview

The Florida Democratic Coordinated Campaign is seeking a skilled and experienced Deputy Voter Protection Director to join our growing team. 2022 will be a critical election year in Florida, with highly-competitive races up and down the ballot, including nationally-watched races for U.S. Senate, Governor, and U.S. Congress in the most diverse battleground in the country. The Coordinated Campaign will build the statewide turnout operation needed to mobilize and persuade voters to support Florida Democrats in November 2022. Starting the earliest in a decade the Florida Coordinated Campaign will be engaging with voters where they are at, in the language that they speak to deliver votes for the Democratic Ticket!

Last cycle Florida’s voter protection team had the largest volunteer base in the country. These thousands of volunteers protected the vote at the early and election day polling places, observed canvassing board meetings, cured ballots, and answered voters questions on the hotline. We are seeking a talented Deputy Voter Protection Director that can lead each of the systems that help recruit, onboard, train, assign, and support volunteers to execute these activities for the 2022 election.

As our Deputy Director of Voter Protection, you will have four main areas of responsibility:
1. Design and manage volunteer experiences from recruitment to assignment for the different voter protection roles.

  • Developing training and the associated materials for each type of role in the voter protection program.
  • Organizing and running trainings with the support of experienced volunteers.
  • Cutting lists, writing scripts, and tagging volunteers in votebuilder (VAN).
  • Disseminating clear and simple volunteer instructions, drafting and monitoring mobilize events, and ensure quality interactions with the volunteers.

2. Manage the Hotline Manager

  • Establish hotline structure and plan for volunteers.
  • Support the Hotline Manager in recruiting, training, and supporting hotline operators.
  • Support the Hotline Manager in recruiting, training, and supporting the ballot cure process.

3. Establish and Support strong partnerships with county-level democratic parties

  • Cultivate strong relationships with county-level democratic organizations to help recruit and coordinate poll watching activities.
  • Recruit, train, and manage volunteers to serve as County Volunteer Managers.

4. Design and maintain strong data practices

  • Administer LBJ, VAN/Votebuilder, Google Forms and other database tools to track issues, volunteers, and voters.
  • Ensure that all volunteers and staff are properly utilizing databases and that their reports are timely, accurate, and escalated appropriately.
  • Develop regular review processes to monitor reports, ensure all voter issues have been resolved, and aggregate and escalate trends.
