Campus Vote Project State Coordinator, North Carolina

Campus Vote Project (CVP) is a campaign of the nonpartisan Fair Elections Legal Network (FELN) that is designed to empower students, faculty, and administrators with the tools they need to break down barriers to voting for college students. Approximately two-thirds of students aged 18-24 who did not vote in the 2010 elections cited lack of information reasons and not a lack of interest. CVP seeks to overcome this information deficit by providing community colleges and universities with non-partisan electoral engagement programming and empowering students with the information and tools they need as our democracy’s newest voters.

The CVP toolkit and Best Practices Guide lay out a set of specific programs schools can implement to provide students with better access to registration and voting. For example, registering students locally at freshman orientation, direct online access to registration forms and setting up a website with voting information specifically aimed at students will eliminate some of the barriers that keep students from the polls.


Position Description

Campus Vote Project will hire one Coordinator in North Carolina to work approximately 40 hours per week starting as soon as possible and through November. The Coordinator will conduct outreach to a priority list of universities and community colleges around the state contacting key administrators, faculty, and student organizations. Leveraging CVP’s network of national and state partners of college administrators, faculty and campus organizations the Coordinator will engage staff on campuses to adopt CVP best practices. The Coordinator will be responsible for establishing lasting relationships with campus leadership for the distribution of FELN and CVP materials such as voter registration guides, student voter guides, webinars, and school newspaper materials. With community colleges, the Coordinator will organize a program to develop student leaders that will conduct voter registration and mobilization campaigns both on campus and in the surrounding community. Additionally, in areas of need, recruitment for student poll workers will be conducted.

The Coordinator will be the main point of contact between campuses and FELN and CVP staff. The Coordinator will receive training from the CVP National Director and will complete weekly reporting.


  • Coordinator must have access to a car as travel throughout the state will be required.
  • History of organizing work either on campuses or with campaigns.

  • Professionalism: Coordinator will be tasked with communicating with college administrators and partner organizations throughout North Carolina. A high level of professionalism is required at all times when working on behalf of FELN and CVP.
