Shashank Vura

Shashank is a rising junior majoring in Government and History in the Cornell University College of Arts and Science. Although he was born in Hyderabad, India, he has lived in Sugar Land, Texas, a suburb of Houston, for the past fifteen years. A fanatic about electoral politics, he is extremely passionate about both international and domestic elections to the extent that he likes to consider himself an “amateur psephologist”. In the future, he would like to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector and potentially attend law school thereafter. In his free time, Shashank enjoys biking, reading mystery novels, eating Thai food, and spending time with his miniature schnauzer. Following his outreach internship with FairVote, he will undertake a year of study at St. Anne’s College, Oxford.
