Elections onAir

Elections onAir is a nonprofit, nonpartisan social enterprise that supports the development and hosting of open access and curated networks of Election Hubs... including this Virginia Elections Hub.

Elections onAir (EOA) Hubs use a proprietary software platform to aggregate and display all types of content.  Viewing a Hub on a laptop or desktop computer provides an enhanced user experience especially through home page interactive maps.

EOA focuses on providing a one stop place for all information related to candidates, elected officials, and government agencies in a state ("Learn" about your government and elected officials). EOA provides many ways to interact with these people especially via streaming video interviews ("Discuss" with your representatives and candidates).

Elections onAir is developing a network of interconnected Elections Hubs. The Virginia Elections Hub is the first Hub we are piloting in anticipation of having an Elections Hub for each state ready for the 2020 elections.

The VA Election Hub is an exciting opportunity to extend civics education beyond the four walls of the traditional classroom. Civics happens on the streets! This organization provides an opportunity to students to use their native digital skills to improve their community and engage in a meaningful way in civics. I am a part of the VA Election Hub to help find and engage students directly in the democratic process as high school interns.

My internship with the Virginia Elections Hub is to progress my interest in public participation and policy and to contribute to the research and curation of reports.

I am highly organized, detail-oriented, personable, and responsible. I have acquired skills in group facilitation, time management, logical thinking and conflict resolution. I am adaptable, quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn more from my peers. 

Through my hands-on experiences, I am proficient at maintaining and promoting customer service by greeting and serving visitors and guests in a courteous and efficient manner, both in person and on the phone. I have also developed a friendly, outgoing, and guest service demeanor through my experiences in sales.
