The mission of BOE is to enfranchise eligible residents, conduct elections, and assure the integrity of the electoral process. This mission is mandated by federal and local statutes. The schedule of elections, which is dictated by law, requires flexibility in the funding levels established from year to year. This mission is executed through the operation of the District’s voter registration system; by administration of the ballot access process for candidates and measures; through the delivery of comprehensive public, media, and voter information services, by maintenance of technical systems to support voting, ballot tabulation, and electronic mapping of election district boundaries; through planning and implementation of each District of Columbia election; and through the performance of legal counsel, rulemaking, and adjudication functions.

DCBOE is looking for an entry level IT consultant with some hands on training with desktop support, some application support and exposure to database technology. The ideal candidate will have a degree and some entry level experience in a small environment where they were exposed to a variety of IT tasks and projects. The agency is looking for someone who is confident to help with hands on IT tasks and is willing to ask questions and be assertive.
