Our Platform: More Jobs (and Internships)

Whether you're sporting a Make America Great Again hat, or shouting I'm With Her to the rafters, or marking the ballot for Mr. Johnson or Ms. Stein, we wish you short waiting lines, non-hacked voting machines, and a renewed sense of civic pride and good wishes towards your fellow citizens today.

Tuesday's set is an amalgam of opportunities with politically-or-Presidentially-focused organizations as well as finds generated by using politics and political as search terms on some popular job boards, which seems to have unearthed some interesting and diverse gigs.  Happy hunting.
