Summary of Internship

Being that I was in this internship since the summer, notthing that I did was anything new. I registered voters into our database fro constituent outreach projects. I helped people with their problems when I knew what to do. I wrote citations and had mail ready to be delivered. The best part was the visit to the State Capitol where I took a picture on the governor's podium.
