Overview

Texas Democratic Party’s mission is to create a full service educational and action plan to expand opportunities for Texans to be registered to vote, educated on all aspects of voting, and have full range of protections from any form of intimidation or voter suppression in casting a ballot or full participation in all aspects of Texas government.

We seek a talented Deputy Director of Voter Protection to ensure that all eligible voters are able to cast their ballot in 2020. Our right to vote is fundamental to all that we hope to accomplish; the Deputy Director of Voter Protection is a crucial role that will help manage a robust, proactive, year-round voter protection program, ensuring free and fair elections in Texas.

What You’ll Do

As our Deputy Director of Voter Protection, you will have four main areas of responsibility: 

  • Serve as legal resource for team and prepare for potential litigation
