Are you our next Board member?

Hey friend–

It’s hard to believe Chicago Votes is a year old! We’ve come so far–from registering thousands of young voters to taking on (and winning!) the fight for online voter registration in Illinois.

If you love Chicago Votes, share our commitment to a civically engaged Chicago, and want to help pave the path to make sure we keep winning for years to come, we hope you’ll apply to join our Board of Directors for the term of service beginning in September!

Click here to submit your application! The deadline is August 7.

Want to get a sense of what we’re looking for in a Board member? Well, aside from being willing and ready to bring delicious snacks to our quarterly meetings and having a deep love for profit & loss statements and bylaws, our ideal new Board family members:

  • Should reflect the diversity of our city (yep, that means young people, women, people of color, LGBT persons, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply);

  • Should be ready and willing to build from their networks to advance our mission–  fundraising, hosting events and more;

  • Should be ready to leave it all on the field to empower young Chicagoans.

  • Want more details? Read more here. 

Is that you? Yeah, we know it is.

Click here to submit your application right right right now!

Thanks for believing in Chicago Votes.



Joanna, TJ, Harishi, Courtney, Ilya, Eric, Carlos and Stacey (the 2012 Chicago Votes Board of Directors)
