Job Description

**Summary: **In 2023, Ohio became the nation’s foremost battleground for protecting abortion rights - winning a ballot initiative fight that gave hope to Democrats across the country. In 2024, Ohio will be the center of the battle for control of the U.S. Senate. Ohio must re-elect Senator Sherrod Brown, a champion for workers and the deciding vote on critical legislation. This year will also offer the chance to take control of the Ohio Supreme Court, make gains in the state legislature, and defend three battleground congressional seats.
**Campus Organizers will be the Ohio Democratic Party's on-the-ground messengers for young voters. They will use a variety of tactics to recruit volunteers and mobilize campus communities across Ohio. **Campus Organizers will have the opportunity to build teams on college campuses across the state to have the voter-to-voter conversations we need in order to win! This is an entry level role - applicants who are passionate about electing Democrats up and down the ballot are the exact folks we need on our team. This position is in-person, based on one or more college campuses in Ohio, and will report to an assigned Regional Organizing Director for Campus.

● Plan for and use a number of tactics to hit daily and weekly metric goals for voter contact and volunteer engagement
● Other responsibilities as assigned by the Organizing Director, Deputy Organizing Director, or Regional Organizing Director of Campus. _Travel will be required within the assigned region to meet with volunteers and voters and/or transfer supplies, and Campus Organizers will receive a monthly travel stipend to help cover these costs. _
