The DNC is accepting applications for Spring 2022.
The program will run from January 24th, 2022 through April 1st, 2022, and will be conducted remotely due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The mission of the Civic Engagement and Voter Protection Department is to ensure every eligible voter can cast a ballot and have that ballot count. We focus on a year-round and long-term approach to expanding voting access and combating voter suppression. This entails research on a variety of voting rights and election administration issues, organizing voter protection related programming and events, including state compliance with federal election laws, redistricting, and legal and legislative developments on the state and national level that affect the right to vote.
Interns engage in a variety of activities: conducting research, drafting memos, organizing events, helping our team manage our year-round voter assistance hotline, developing our online and social media presence, managing our volunteer efforts, and speaking to voters nationwide through our year-round Voter Hotline.
J.D. students are preferred. A writing sample and a cover letter are required. We ask that Voter Protection interns commit 20 hours per week during the Spring 2022 term.
Due to the volume of applications, we cannot review additional materials sent outside of the application form. All applicants must complete the application to be considered.
