Mass IRV campaign needs an organizer

From our friends at the Massachusetts group, Citizens for Voter Choice, who are organizing a petition drive to get a referendum on Instant Runoff Voting on the November ballot. Please forward!

Job Posting--Campaign Manager
The Massachusetts Voter Choice ballot referendum campaign is looking for a full time campaign manager to begin immediately. The Voter Choice referendum seeks to enact a system of ranked choice (or "Instant Runoff") voting in Massachusetts. This will empower voters with more voices and choices in elections, put missing solutions back on the agenda and eliminate the fear of "spoilers" taking votes away from other candidates. In general, it is a key reform to help build the democracy we urgently need to start solving all the other critical, growing problems.

The organizer will oversee the collection of 100,000 signatures between Sept. 11 and Nov. 18, in order to put the question on the Nov. 2010 ballot. Responsibilities include volunteer recruitment, organizing, database, media and communications in person, by phone, email and website. Experience with organizing statewide grassroots campaigns and petition initiatives is useful. For information on the Voter Choice campaign, see below, or go to .

If you are interested in the position, please contact us and send a resume to
