Get out the Youth Vote in 2022
New Voters Project Administrative Assistant
On Election Day, young people will be the largest and most diverse group of potential voters, with distinct values and ideas. But the issues that affect young people are not being addressed because the youth don’t vote in big enough numbers. Despite record-breaking youth voter turnout during the 2020 presidential election, young people continue to be underrepresented in our democracy. We can choose to let other people make decisions that impact the future, or we can vote and get a future that works for all of us.
That’s why the Student PIRGs is running the New Voters Project, our non-partisan voter registration and get-out-the-vote campaign on college campuses across the country for the 2022 midterm elections this fall.
We’re hiring an Administrative Assistant to help manage the administrative work to make our voter registration drives successful.

- Managing lists of young voters to run effective get-out-the-vote efforts
- Helping to manage subgrants and stipends for the project
- Helping to identify and interview candidates for organizer positions to aid in our efforts across the country
