As you might have noticed, our job board is blowing up with amazing ways that college students can support the democratic process this fall. Whether it’s helping people register to vote, or staffing polling stations on election day, you’ll find great opportunities to get involved on QuadJobs right now. We thought we’d highlight just a few of the organizations who’ve posted for help during this election cycle.
Generation Vote (genvote.org):
“Do you feel like your voice is not heard in local politics? Are you a student activist interested in changing the status quo? Or are you a candidate running for office and have no idea how to get in touch with our generation? Meet Generation Vote. We want to help you make your voice heard, whether you are a student or a local candidate running for office. Through our unique model of civic engagement, we have created a comprehensive strategy to transform the way young people engage in local electoral politics and advocacy campaigns.”
Common Cause (commoncause.org):
“Since 1970, Common Cause has been working to hold power accountable through lobbying, litigation, and grassroots organizing. Our non-partisan, pro-democracy work has helped pass hundreds of reforms at the federal, state, and local levels. Our more than 1 million members and more than 30 state organizations around the country work to strengthen our democracy by empowering the voices of everyday Americans in government.”
Big Tent USA (bigtentusa.org):
“Founded by a group of suburban women with diverse political views, the BigTentUSA community has come together to help restore decency and good governance to Washington. Our members are smart but busy, so we sort through the clutter to provide substantive information, concrete action items, and opportunities to make a difference. We are a community of women determined to wake up with no regrets on November 4th and make sure our voices are always heard.”
