Current Job Opportunities
JOB TITLE: Communications Manager
POSITION SUMMARY: This position is a one year opportunity for an outstanding communications professional to be a key member of the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin’s state staff, reporting to the Executive Director. The person chosen will work closely with the Board and other staff to coordinate internal and external messaging in alignment with our strategic plan and overall organizational priorities including mission, strategic planning, and programming.
This person will be responsible for supporting day-to-day internal and external communications needs including: media outreach; social media channels; website development and updating; biweekly emails to local Leagues, volunteers and other supporters; quarterly newsletter; our online HUB for local Leagues; and more. This position will be key in our campaign to leverage the organization's 100th anniversary as well as election protection and voter service efforts.
Help the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin monitor Wisconsin's elections. We are seeking volunteers to be trained as Election Observers and placed in polling places in specific areas around the state. We provide training, assign volunteers their polling place(s) to observe, and provide volunteers with a reporting form to record their observations. We will do our best to assign you to a location near your home. You don't need to be a League member to volunteer for this -- although we'd love to have you join us!
For the 2020 elections we are focusing the Election Observation Program in three areas:
- to be sure there is no disenfranchisement
- to monitor the voter experience - including registration and showing ID
- to track any problems that can be fixed for future elections
Requirements: You'll need to be available to volunteer for a minimum of 2 hours on Election Day. Election observers will also need a cell phone to use while volunteering and have their own transportation to and from their assigned polling location. There are also opportunities to be a "roving" observer and observe at multiple polling sites. Rovers need to be available to volunteer for at least 4 hours on Election Day.
Training Information: We conduct our election observer training via online webinar.
Learn more about our Election Observation Program here. If you have questions about this volunteer opportunity contact our Voter Education Manager, Eileen Newcomer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (608)256-0827.
Upcoming elections we're observing:
- April 7, 2020 (volunteer sign up for the April 7 Election has closed)
- November 3, 2020
