Florida Voter ID Clinics and ID Assistance Organizer (“Florida Organizer”)

OVERVIEW

VoteRiders is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit, focused on voter ID education and assistance. Our work raises awareness of voter ID laws and VoteRiders’ services. Our programs identify, educate and help voters in need of voter ID assistance so they can vote with confidence, knowing they cannot be turned away.

Targeted voter ID education and assistance in Florida has never been more crucial, as a new voting law passed in April 2021 risks creating further confusion about the state’s requirements for ID when voting in person and by mail. Because of this new law, as well as widespread confusion and intimidation surrounding voter ID issues more broadly, millions of Floridians may be unable to, or deterred from, casting a ballot.

VoteRiders is seeking a Florida-based Organizer to support and scale our work in the state, with a particular focus on implementing and expanding our Voter ID Clinics program. Voter ID Clinics involve placing trained VoteRiders staff or volunteers on-site (or virtually) at partnering community organizations such as shelters, community centers, food banks, and more. Ideally held on a regular basis, VoteRiders’ Voter ID Clinics offer one-on-one and fully-paid voter ID assistance to any voter who needs it — including all transportation arrangements and costs and paying the fees for the ID and underlying documents.

This is a full-time position, available ASAP, funded through December 31, 2022, with possibility for extension. The VoteRiders Florida Organizer will work in close coordination with our Florida Voter ID Coalition Coordinator (based in Orlando) and report to our National Voter ID Assistance Director.

  • Track and reconcile expenses associated with the organization of Voter ID Clinics and  voter ID assistance
  • Document stories, visually and otherwise, of voters assisted, including the steps taken  to obtain an acceptable ID and capturing impact stories for posting on social and digital  media as well as through traditional media coverage of Voter ID Clinics
