Every great organization has an outstanding board of directors. Chicago Votes is no different, and we’re growing!

We’re excited to announce that we are looking for the brightest minds to join our board of directors. The board of directors is a body that steers the mission of our organization, assists with our fundraising goals and manages the executive director.

Our mission is simple. We train young people with the leadership skills, civic knowledge and hands-on experience to have a lasting impact on democracy in Chicago. Oh, and we also like to win. Online voter registration? We were on it. Same day voter registration? Yeah, we did that.

We invite you to fill out this quick application and we hope you consider applying to join our board as we enter 2016 to educate young people, train emerging leaders and bring our democracy into the 21st century. Applications are due December 4th!

Wait, so what are we about exactly?

Well, we like photo booths. A lot.

We’re working to expand voting rights in Illinois, specifically by advancing Automatic Voter Registration.

We’re training young people to understand and work in politics.

We’re working with high schools to develop leaders and get out the vote!

Oh, and we’re having a lot of fun too.

Who wouldn’t want to be a part of this? Apply to join our board by December 4th.
