We are now hiring Summer Fellows! Please pass around the posting and help us build our 2015 fellowship team!

Democracy Works/ TurboVote Summer Fellowship – 2015

At Democracy Works, we believe voting should fit the way we live. To that end, we build technology for both voters and election administrators that simplifies the process and ensures that no voter should ever have to miss an election.

TurboVote, our first service, tracks an individual voter’s elections. We provide all the materials and information they need to get registered, stay registered, and cast a ballot in every election, from municipal to national—and we’ll even mail forms with an addressed, stamped envelope for the local election office. Ballot Scout helps local election administrators track absentee ballots as they travel through the mail, providing transparency in the vote-by-mail process and making it easier to follow up when things go awry. We also work with the Pew Charitable Trusts and Google to ensure that the Voting Information Project’s data is up-to-date and ready from one election to the next.

The Democracy Works partnerships team recruits schools, organizations, and local governments to promote voter engagement through the strategic use of our technology. We help work with over 200 colleges and universities and more than a dozen nonprofit organizations to institutionalize engagement opportunities into their established programs and processes. We are also building partnerships with county clerks across the county to launch the new Ballot Scout program in order to help create transparency in the absentee ballot process.

In 2015, our goals are to invest in these existing partners and find creative ways to help them build more comprehensive programs for voter engagement, and to conduct outreach to potential partners and set the stage for substantial program growth over the next two years. We will also be focused on establishing formal partnerships with local election offices across the country as we build a new program around the Ballot Scout tool.

About the fellowship . . .

In order to accomplish our goals, we’re looking for a team of student leaders to join our organization this summer. Positions on the team will vary – we are looking for a multitalented group who can take on a diversity of tasks in the organization.

All fellows will work together to conduct outreach to new potential partners and help support the work of existing college and universities partners using TurboVote. You will need to be:

  • A problem-solver with a “yes, and” mentality
  • At home in an agile, fast-paced work environment
  • Dedicated to providing top-notch customer/constituent service
  • An excellent oral and written communicator, with phone presence and presentation skills
  • Adept at translating ideas for diverse audiences with varying skill sets and levels of expertise
  • Organized, able to prioritize time effectively and multi-task
  • A “people person”
  • Experience in political organizing, leading an organization, or business development a plus, but not a requirement.

Since this is a startup, our fellows wear lot of hats. Special projects will also be available for fellows with specific skills. Please let us know in your application if you have experience in one of the following areas:

  • Graphic design
  • Writing and editing, media and communications
  • CSS/ website development
  • Salesforce or other CRM management
  • Microsoft Excel

These are full-time PAID positions located in Brooklyn. The fellowship program runs from early June to mid-August. We will begin reviewing applications in the middle of March.

Prospective candidates should send resume and two references to Adrienne Lever at interns@turbovote.org with the subject line “Will intern for democracy” to begin the application process.

While there’s certainly a lot of work left to do, the team at TurboVote is excited to report that we’re really making some solid progress together with partners.

  • Over 3 million students – almost 1% of all americans – attend a campus with an active TurboVote partnership.
  • Over 80,000 of those students have signed up for TurboVote.

Congratulations to all TurboVote campuses on their voter engagement efforts this year! To see more about how top school were able to engage so many voters, check out these two links.

Today is Constitution Day, and we’re celebrating the fact that more than 200 colleges and universities now promote TurboVote as an integral part of their students’ civic education. These partners are institutionalizing voter engagement on their campuses and working to provide their students with all the materials and information they need, for every election. How better to commemorate the Constitution’s 225th anniversary?

This dedication to supporting students’ civic participation spans all corners of higher education. Our partners include both Marlboro College’s 235 students in Vermont’s Green Mountains and Ivy Tech Community College’s 31 campuses across the state of Indiana. On a map, they span from the University of Puget Sound to the Florida Keys Community College.

Half of these institutions are implementing TurboVote as part of our collaboration with NASPA and AASCU, two of the largest leadership networks in higher education. Their participation helps create stronger connections between TurboVote schools, and supports even better implementation practices across all our partners. It’s not just individual schools, it’s a community building the future of campus civic engagement.

They’re already hard at work
In the past three weeks, these partners have already signed more than 10,000 students up for TurboVote. Our top implementers so far this fall are Harvard, Elmhurst College, Miami Dade College, the University of Florida and the University of Chicago, but there’s still plenty of time for our other partners to catch up as major registration events kick off this week and next.

And we’re not done yet
Next Tuesday, Democracy Works and our TurboVote partners will celebrate National Voter Registration Day alongside more than a thousand community organizations, schools, and the National Association of Secretaries of State. Now in its third year, National Voter Registration Day is a recognized holiday for civic engagement. If you’d like to celebrate with us, send your friends to TurboVote on Tuesday, and join the conversation on the #CelebrateNVRD hashtag!

We are so impressed! Our incredible Summer Associate, Leslie Glotzer, just finished reaching out to our partner schools across the country to help support their implementation efforts. Now after hundreds of calls and emails, she has a few words of wisdom to share about TurboVote implementation. . .

My name is Leslie and I am a summer associate here at TurboVote. I have had the exciting task of reaching out to all of our partners over the last several weeks to learn about implementation plans for the fall. It has been wonderful to connect with many of our amazing implementers and and I can’t wait to see their creative plans come to fruition. NOTE: If your school hasn’t received a call from me, we may be missing important contact information. Please update our contact database and I’ll be sure to reach out shortly. 

Now that I’ve reached out to most of our partners, I thought I’d share some key take-aways from my outreach. For answers to other questions about implementation, please see our new FAQs for students and implementers

1) Teamwork! The best TurboVote programs come together when school administrators and student leaders work in partnership. School administrators have access to college and university resources, while student leaders often have the best ideas for how to share the word with their peers. 

2) Imitation is the best form of flattery. I’ve been sharing a lot of our “best practices” for implementation, as well as our full implementation archive with over 100 ideas so that our partners can learn from their peers. Our partners can also look up examples of success stories in their region by checking out the gold stars our partnerships map!
 
3) Bragging about success. TurboVote loves highlighting the success of our partners. If your school has a great idea, we want to hear about it! If you sign up a lot of students, we want to hear how you did it! Share your story here
 
4) More time spent doesn’t always equal greater results. Sitting outside in the sun for hours with laptops, doesn’t always result in a successful program. Nor does canvassing the entire campus with flyers. Always start with your checklist:

  • Have I sent out a school-wide email?
  • Have I made use of high-traffic opportunities such as freshman orientation, class registration, or sporting events?
  • Have I placed a TurboVote widget on my school’s website and/or intranet page? 

I’ve had a blast working at TurboVote this summer, but I have a little secret to share: I’m in your shoes too! As I head back to school at the University of Chicago, I will be leading the TurboVote implementation on my campus. Even while still working at TurboVote HQ, I have been coordinating with my fellow students back home make sure that we get a school-wide sent out this week. – Leslie

Title: Data Fellow, Voting Information Project

At Democracy Works, we believe that voting should fit the way we live. To that end, we’ve joined forces with The Pew Charitable Trusts as the data and technology contractor for the Voting Information Project (VIP), a collaboration between Pew and Google to provide every voter with access to standardized information about where and how to vote–data that powers everything from Google’s Voter Information Tool to our own text message and email reminders to TurboVote’s users.

As national mid-term elections approach, we’re recruiting a cohort of data fellows to join our team in the herculean task of collecting, parsing, and assuring the quality of a nation’s worth of election data by November. This is a full-time, paid position running from the start of September through just after Election Day.

As a data fellow for VIP, you’ll:

  • Support an open government dataset that received 25 million hits in 2012
  • Collect, review, reformat, and generally wrangle the thorniest of elections data
  • Apply (and maintain) parsers, quality assurance checkers, and data management scripts

You are:

  • Obsessively attentive to detail
  • Creative, in the way that recognizes the artistry of a well-wrought Excel macro
  • Capable of staying focused in a high-energy environment
  • Passionate about civic tech, open data, and government 2.0

You have experience:

  • Handling large, complex datasets using some combination of Excel, SQL, and Ruby/Python (or similar)
  • (Preferably) in politics or government
  • Working on highly collaborative teams

This is a full-time, competitively-paid position running through the week of the election. We’re based in Brooklyn, NY and Denver, CO, and we’ll take on fellows at either office.

To apply, send a resume and pithy introduction to Paul and Noma at work@turbovote.org with the subject “Will wrangle data for democracy.”

We are building an awesome, diverse team, so we strongly encourage applicants of all races, colors, political party associations, religions (or lack thereof), national origins, sexual orientations, genders, sexes, ages, abilities, and branches of military service. Feel free to contact us at work@turbovote.org if you have any questions about our commitment to diversity or about general hiring practices.

Last Tuesday, our Denver and Kansas staff descended on Brooklyn for a week of planning, collaboration, and fun. We also took the opportunity to get our first team photo… ever?

I’m excited to announce some big news! Thanks to a $150,000 grant from the Rita Allen Foundation, we’re working with two national higher education networks to bring TurboVote to 100 new college and university partners this year.

NASPA and AASCU Partner with TurboVote

Our partnership with two of the giants in higher education, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA), will set a new standard for voter engagement in U.S. higher education. AASCU’s and NASPA’s support for our work sends an important message that democratic engagement should be a part of every student’s college experience. Check out the official press release about our partnership!

Keeping students engaged in EVERY election

This initiative could not have come at a better time. With midterm elections fast approaching, we are reminded of a key challenge in student voting: participation drops significantly in non-presidential years. While nearly two-thirds of college students voted in November 2012, only 27% did so in 2010. And turnout drops even lower in primary and municipal elections.

Studies suggest that these voting inconsistencies are tied to a lack of easy access to information. 66% of students who did not vote in 2010 missed the election for logistical reasons, according to a CIRCLE study. Some were away, some forgot. Only 12% reported that they missed the election because they were uninterested.

NASPA and AASCU have a proven record of promoting civic engagement in higher education, and their leadership will make it even easier for their member institutions to provide students with the materials and information they need to vote. This means that together, we can can increase—and maintain—voter participation on campus, even in midterms and local elections.

Supporting our growth

More than 90 schools have already signed on to be TurboVote partners in 2014. This puts us far ahead of where we were two years ago—at this point in 2012, only four schools were using TurboVote! Over 18 new institutions have already officially joined us through the NASPA and AASCU partnership alone.

It’s a lot of new growth, and we are expecting a lot more over the next six months. So I’m excited to introduce you to Adrienne Lever, who joined our team in January as Senior Director for Strategic Partnerships. She couldn’t have joined us at a better time—there’s nothing more valuable than getting powerful reinforcements as we prepare for our biggest year yet!

Help us reach more schools! Informational webinar tomorrow at 2pm!

We still have a lot of work to do to hit our goals and we need your help to spread the word. So please take a look at the list of TurboVote partners below. Do you know someone at an institution that is not yet using TurboVote? If so, please forward this email and invite them to join one of our informational webinars. These webinars are free and open to the public.

TurboVote Informational Webinar

Thursday, April 10, 2014 @ 2pm EDT OR Friday, April 25th, 2014 @ 2pm EDT

RSVP to partnerships@turbovote.org

With your help, we can ensure that students across the country participate in the elections this year and that institutions are supporting habits that will lead to life-long civic engagement.

Thank you for being a part of this effort! And happy voting!
