About State Voices

State Voices is a national network of nonpartisan, state-based coalitions working year-round to create a more accessible, inclusive and representative democracy by engaging marginalized and underrepresented communities and strengthening the organizations and leaders that serve them.

Since 2008, our network has been a catalyst for the expansion of non-partisan voter engagement. We have worked to increase voter registration and turnout, combat voter suppression efforts, and advocate for policies that benefit low-income families, people of color, women, youth, the environment, and more. Our 23 state “tables” – comprised of more than 700 grassroots organizations – continue to build enduring power through coordinated planning and campaigns, shared resources, data-driven accountability, and leadership development.

State Voices provides the organizations in our network with the tools and support they need to help create a healthy and thriving democracy. We advance this work through three (3) national programs: Civic Engagement (voter registration, GOTV, issue advocacy, and constituency engagement), Civic Access (voting rights and election administration), and Civic Representation (census, redistricting, and “money in politics”).

Responsibilities Include:

  • Work with state tables to help develop voter registration goals and strategies for their partners, and to reevaluate goals as needed.
  • Help develop state-based training curriculum for state tables to present to their partners.

  • Train and coach tables to use best practices for using data to drive voter registration programs.
  • Assist in development and delivery of trainings related to voter registration data and associated technologies (BLOCKS, VAN VRT, Captricity, and others) and attend trainings and check-ins in states where high volume voter registration work is ongoing.
  • Serve as a top tier support asset and single point of contact supporting voter registration technologies, advising in-state and partner data and quality control staff on best practices, support issues, and trouble tickets.
  • Identify and/or create new tools and reporting for table staffs to maximize their voter registration programs and goals.
  • Work with state data managers and national staff on analysis and reporting of voter registration data to maximize program results.
  • Other duties as assigned.
