Political Campaign Opportunities
Hi, I am a sophomore and I’m interested in politics and law. However, I’ve been trying to get involved this year in political campaigns, but have had a lot of trouble doing so. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to possibly get an internship or how to volunteer for a political campaign, Thank you in advance!!

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
You can also, in addition to what was already said, sign up to canvass or phonebank (don't require an application). Phonebanking can be done remotely and many campaigns definitely need the service especially with the lack of actual events. Think local or state legislature races: those are the ones most in need of volunteers (so you'd have a high chance of getting accepted).
Send your resume to the campaign. I recommend going for the local level (i.e. state offices for national campaigns, Congressional campaigns, etc.). In your email, express your passion for the issues detailed on the politician's website.
I hope this helps. Enjoy your day and stay healthy.
