San Diego, California. September 26th, 2018 — The 2018 midterm elections are just around the corner. On November 6th, Americans will head to the polls to cast their votes; however, political parties, non-profits, think tanks and various other organizations have been readying themselves for months, and hiring individuals to aid in the process. To that end, job platform Joblift recently analyzed all 3,797 online job postings from the last year pertaining to this year’s midterm elections. Surprisingly, the majority of jobs posted were located outside of Washington D.C. Additionally, nearly half of postings had no minimum education requirement. This suggests that involvement in this year’s electoral process is not merely confined to major coastal, metropolitan areas, nor to a highly-educated subset of the population — both positive signs for one of the world’s most visible democracies.
