The in-person vote is June 28th, but vote-by-mail ballots will go out at the end of May - which drastically reduces the campaigning time. The ideal intern or volunteer will have great energy, be enthusiastic and come with solid ideas. This candidate(s) is timely, punctual and friendly both face to face and on the phone.
