biden-harris-pusaWASHINGTON - Today, President Joe Biden announced that Alana Mounce will serve as ballot access director and Varoon Modak will serve as senior counsel for ballot access for the Biden-Harris 2024 reelection campaign. Together, this team will oversee the campaign efforts to cement President Biden’s place on the ballot in all 57 states and territories and lead the campaign’s delegate selection process.

The campaign’s ballot access team will expand on the infrastructure built by the 2020 campaign and the DNC, including the existing massive volunteer and supporter network to ensure the president’s place on the ballot. Today’s announcement builds on the campaign and DNC’s existing organizing strengths and will be integral to Team Biden-Harris’ efforts to engage and energize the president’s key supporters around the country. 

“The stakes of this election could not be higher and Alana and Varoon will spearhead the process to ensure the Biden-Harris ticket is on the ballot in all 57 states and territories,” said Julie Chavez Rodriguez, Biden-Harris 2024 Campaign Manager. “Their work will expand on the DNC’s critical organizing work across the country and be fundamental to the campaign’s efforts to engage our key supporters and volunteers. They will be responsible for finding new and innovative ways to engage and organize Biden-Harris supporters where they are, which is especially important in our battleground states, as well as ensuring our delegate selection process reflects the values and diversity of our party. Alana and Varoon are extraordinarily talented, hardworking, and experienced on this issue. Our campaign is stronger with their leadership.”
