Vot-ER Careers

Overview

At Vot-ER, we envision healthy communities powered by an inclusive democracy. We are working to exponentially scale voter access within America’s healthcare system. We provide the tools, training, and community to support a growing movement that amplifies the voices of patients, families, & healthcare professionals in America’s democracy.

As an organization with a vision focused on an inclusive American democracy, we aim to reflect that standard in our own organization as well. Vot-ER has a strong commitment to diversity and especially encourages people who are historically underrepresented in healthcare and civic engagement to apply.
