Job Description

The great swing state of Wisconsin often feels like the center of the political and public policy universe, especially during an election year. Major outcomes from abortion rights to voting access often ride on just how many Wisconsinites decide to stay home or show up at the polls. A lot of pressure, right?
Luckily, Wisconsin has a super power: it’s young voters. Over 300,000 college students call Wisconsin home –** when we organize on campuses, students vote. **
Building on work started during the [April 2023 Supreme Court Election](https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2023/04/11/wisconsin-liberal-youth-vote/), we’re building a scrappy and innovative organization that will organize and inspire thousands of college students to vote in the 2024 elections.

- Aid with specific event needs and assist with advancing events as necessary
- Ensure logistical support for an expansive organizing program, including working with vendors, ordering merchandise and materials, completing regular supply audits, etc.
- All other duties as assigned

**Who Are You?**
A successful candidate for this role will:
- Have 2+ years of experience in operations for a c3/c4 organization or political campaign. Experience with campaign operations and campus organizing is a plus.
