AbstractThe internship experience with the City Clerk’s Office of Tucson, Arizona, provided the intern with the opportunity to observe and participate in the basic duties and functions of a public agency. The intern worked under the guidance and direction of the City Clerk. Projects were assigned which varied in complexity, scope, and responsibility. Although the intern was introduced to the complete range of activities of the Clerk’s Office, most of the time was spent on election-oriented activities. The administration of elections was studied intensely from beginning to end. Special attention was given to the environment in which the City Clerk operates. Attention was also focused on the behavior of individuals within an organizational structure. After completing the internship and the body of the diary, the intern integrated classroom theory and practical experience. Recommendations were then made regarding the organizational structure of the City Clerk’s Office and other related points.
