Although the 2022 election has not been finalized, it’s apparent to most political observers that Congresswoman Mary Peltola, a Democrat, will win election to the two-year seat representing the state of Alaska.
The final results of the election will be determined at 4 pm on Wednesday by the Division of Elections, as the division runs the tabulation for the ranked-choice method of voting. Watch the tabulation as it is conducted at this link.
But meanwhile, Peltola, with a significant lead (she has 48.68% of the vote so far) went ahead and advertised today that she is hiring interns for her office in D.C. for spring.
“The Washington, D.C. Office of Representative Mary Sattler Peltola (D-AK) is seeking interns for the Spring 2023 term. This position offers an opportunity to learn about the U.S. House of Representatives and gain substantive work experience in an exciting and fast-paced office. Internships in the office are paid, available for college credit, or may be funded through another program or University. The hours generally run 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Interns will work for 12-16 weeks (January-May),” her office announced.
“In Washington, interns’ responsibilities will vary. They may be asked to answer phones, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.”
Applicants must submit:
* Cover Letter
