Deep Canvasser

Website MOJWJ Missouri Jobs with Justice

A part-time, temporary deep canvasser (full time the 4 weeks before the November election) at 20 hours per week at $25/hour from June 2022 – April 2023

Through a combination of deep canvassing and traditional voter engagement this position will work regionally to test scripts and messaging, identify voters on issues, educate voters on where candidates stand on issues that are important to the targeted voters and mobilize supportive voters to turn out in the August, November and April elections.

Deep canvassing is one of the most proven and durable forms of persuasion and is far more effective than other forms of persuasion employed by traditional political campaigns. Deep canvasses are candid, two-way conversations where canvassers ask voters to share their relevant, emotionally significant experiences and reflect on them aloud.

Deep canvasses typically involve:
● Non-judgmentally soliciting voters’ views and asking follow-up questions about voters’ experiences.
● Sharing narratives about personal experiences with the issue that reinforce values relevant to the issue.

Weekly Work:
● Training and conversation prep
● Canvassing 15 hours in the field (or pivot to phones due to inclement weather)
● Follow up calls to pledge signers
● Debriefing and offering feedback on script and survey questions

The ideal candidate will be comfortable having intense and sometimes uncomfortable conversations with a wide array of people. Candidates must have a working vehicle with insurance, a cell phone with data and have an ability to work 15 hours a week in the field including some evenings and Saturday or Sunday each week. We require staff to be vaccinated.
