Summer Intern (Paid)

Remote positions available for highly qualified candidates

Who We Are:

We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization working to make it easier to vote in this country by adding mobile voting options so more voters can vote from the convenience of their mobile devices. Far too many voters do not vote because it remains too hard to access and cast a ballot, from military voters stationed around the world who cannot get a ballot delivered in time, to voters with disabilities who cannot get to polling places or physically mark a paper absentee ballot, and even voters displaced due to natural disasters or other emergencies. Low turnout in local and primary elections threatens our democracy and is fueling the rise in hyper partisan politics that makes it impossible for our elected leaders to make progress on any issue.

To change this and to increase participation in our democracy, we are fighting to expand access to mobile voting options to make voting easier, more convenient, and more accessible. We have funded over 20 pilot elections in seven states to prove that this option works. We have also funded research and development into new technology that will make mobile voting even more secure and convenient and increase the transparency and verifiability of our elections. Now that the technology is ready, we are focused on building a movement to raise awareness about the need for mobile voting and build support to enact policy changes at the state and local level so more voters can use mobile voting in the future.

We are seeking interns to join this effort. You will work independently in a remote setting and will assist with research, community outreach, data management, volunteer recruitment and engagement, assisting with legislative campaigns, and digital advocacy.
