DescriptionNational Internships are available year round at Project Vote Smart’s Great Divide Ranch. Take an active role in politics and help defend citizens from the manipulative tactics of self-serving, issueless campaigns. Interns answer our Voter’s Research Hotline (1-888-VOTE-SMART), collect performance evaluations, research background information, perform legislative research, and administer our Political Courage Test. We also offer internships in an information technology position. Several other positions are available. Please visit our website – http://www.votesmart.org/program_internships.php – for a complete list. Interns receive room and board for the duration of their time at the Ranch.

2. Be in good standing with your college/university.
3. Commit to 10 consecutive 40-hour work weeks.
