About The Contract

In 2023 and 2024, RepresentUs is supporting a campaign in Nevada to pass statewide open top-five primaries and Ranked Choice Voting in general elections (Question 3).

In November 2022, this campaign was supported by nearly 53% of Nevada voters. Because Question 3 is a constitutional amendment, it must be passed by voters in 2 consecutive elections to become law. From now until November 2024, RepresentUs is working in Nevada to ensure a final victory for Question 3 to secure a stronger democracy for all Nevadans.

The Field Organizer will work on the ground in Nevada to organize volunteers and voters and work with coalition members in support of the Question 3 campaign. This position is based in Nevada.

The Field Organizer will help organize and support RepresentUs local action teams in the state and plan and execute events and training, under the supervision of RepresentUs staff and in close coordination with the official local Question 3 campaign. The Field Organizer will also assist RepresentUs in collecting, assembling and standardizing data and reports on our organizing efforts in the state.

The Field Organizer will submit regular reports to the State Director.
