Position Summary

North Carolina Voter Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit committed to changing the face of North Carolina’s electorate by registering and turning out new voters. NCVP specializes in new and innovative strategies to register and engage new voters and build lasting change. Our organization is different: we are willing to experiment to find the most productive and efficient way to expand the electorate, and we foster

long-term growth that does not boom and bust with each election cycle.

The analyst must utilize visual aids and key and factual points to communicate the data clearly. This may require communication with the local board of elections. This role will play a critical part in key elections in North Carolina this cycle. The Data Analyst will report to the Executive Director and work closely with the Deputy Director/ Field Team in implementing targets and analyzing results. They also may work closely with elected officials and table partners. Candidates are required to live in North Carolina.
