VoteRiders Legal Director
VoteRiders is the country’s leading nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit that focuses on voter ID education and assistance. In the 2022 election cycle our programs directly reached over 4.5 million voters. On-the-ground programs, partnerships, and digital campaigns raise awareness of voter ID laws, making sure voters know what ID they need to vote in their state and providing completely free ID assistance to voters in need. Our programs identify, educate and help voters with voter ID issues so they can vote with confidence, knowing they cannot be turned away.
As VoteRiders continues to grow in response to the quickly-rising need for our work, we are seeking a highly-motivated Legal Director to join our team. This individual will be the primary internal legal resource for VoteRiders, ensuring that the organization continues to provide best-in-class, uniquely comprehensive, up-to-date, and precisely accurate information in connection with ID to vote. The ideal candidate is committed to the essential need for and benefit of VoteRiders as a leading non-partisan civic engagement organization in general and to voter ID education and assistance in particular.
Director reports to the VoteRiders CEO/ED and will work closely with the Founder/Chair of the Board to develop in-depth voter ID expertise from a legal perspective as well as the National Voter ID Assistance Director/Deputy General Counsel. Director will also liaise as needed with VoteRiders’ Outside General Counsel and our extensive nationwide network of pro-bono attorney volunteers. Further, Director will provide cross-cutting support to all organizational staff to ensure precise accuracy across all of our programs and resources and build the capacity of staff to serve as trusted experts, especially locally, on the issue of voter ID.
VoteRiders is a fully remote organization, so this individual can be based anywhere in the continental United States. Please apply ASAP!
