Aufgabe: FairVote is a non-partisan non-profit organization that seeks to make democracy fair, functional, and fully representative. We believe there are simple, common sense ways to strengthen our democracy and ensure all voices are heard, all views are respected, and every vote counts.

Our internship program offers participants the opportunity to work on projects that advance reforms at the local, state, and national level. Interns build skills and learn through assignments and attending workshops and seminars. We also often have guest speakers in our office and organize field trips to relevant sites in Washington, D.C. such as Capitol Hill.

Our internships are substantive and interns' work is often featured in our educational, advocacy, and outreach activities. Our internships include the flexibility to work in a field in which the intern is most interested, be it research, activism, communications, administration, or design.
