Vot-ER is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to integrate civic engagement into healthcare. We develop nonpartisan civic engagement tools and programs for every corner of the healthcare system—from private practitioners to medical schools to hospitals. Our work is driven by a community of health care professionals, organizers, clinical students, and technologists united by a common vision: healthy communities powered by inclusive democracy. Together, we’ve expanded Vot-ER programs into over 700 hospitals and clinics and helped more than 75,000 Americans prepare to vote. And we’re just getting started.

Job Description:

Launched in 2020, Vot-ER has scaled rapidly over the last few years, now with 30,000 participating healthcare providers, over 700 hospitals, and a range of other partners. Our work in 2023 will lay the groundwork for what Vot-ER looks like for years to come.

Vot-ER has a robust paid internship program that helps undergraduates meet leaders in the fields of democracy and health, work with strong mentors, and build new skills. Note that this is a remote internship for undergraduate students.
