Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin launched a portal Tuesday that provides individuals with the opportunity to apply for a job within his gubernatorial administration when he assumes office in January. 

“To accomplish his Day One plan, and to work hard for all Virginians every day thereafter, the Governor-Elect is going to assemble the strongest team in Virginia’s history, made up of individuals from all walks of life,” the email reads that was sent to Youngkin supporters Tuesday evening. 

The portal will be used to fill political appointment positions from the top to the bottom of Youngkin’s new administration. The transition team for the governor-elect, which has yet to be formally announced, will be tasked with going through the list of applicants and filling positions. 

According to the office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth, Virginia’s governor makes roughly 900 appointments throughout each year to various boards and commissions

“As Governor-Elect Youngkin stated on Wednesday, ‘to all those who came out to vote for us on Tuesday—thank you. Thank you for standing up for Virginia and entrusting me with your family’s futures. To those who voted a different way this time—thank you for fighting for what you believe in. I look forward to coming together and earning your support over the next four years.”

Joe Biden had a similar process during his presidential-transition process.
