Field Researcher
Ohio Democratic Party
Columbus, Ohio


Over the next two years, Ohio Democrats (ODP) will build an organization to win
highly-consequential elections up and down the ballot. With new leadership comes a new
vision for our Party, refocusing on the core fundamentals that move the needle. ODP is
building back better as a focused, modern, and nimble force to elect Democrats statewide now
and in the future.
Ohio must re-elect Senator Sherrod Brown in what will be the nation’s top targeted race in
2024. The battle to maintain the Senate majority will be fought in Ohio. 2024 also offers the
chance to take control of the Ohio Supreme Court, make gains in the state legislature, and
defend three battleground congressional seats under new legislative maps.

2024 Senate race to reelect Sherrod Brown. We are seeking a dependable, resourceful
individual who is committed to electing Democrats, has a good attitude, and can work
independently. This is an entry-level position and a good opportunity for those interested in
campaign research.
