NH Rocks the Vote

Young people will play a crucial role in this year’s election.

Using their vote – some for the first time – young people have the opportunity to elect officials at the state and federal levels who will make decisions on the pressing issues that are important to, and will affect, them and their decision to stay in, or leave, New Hampshire.

In partnership with NH Rocks and supported by Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health and the League of Conservation Voters, Stay Work Play’s NH Rocks the Vote initiative is a campaign to encourage young people across the Granite State to first register to vote and then use their right to do so to choose who they would like to represent them in Concord and in Washington. As part of this initiative, we will present young people in New Hampshire with the information and resources they will need to make their voices heard this fall.

On November 3 – Election Day – we will host a virtual “get out the vote” event complete with live entertainment and music, speakers, and relaying messages from local leaders and “celebrities” to inspire young people to cast their vote. Find more details below regarding the day of line-up (more details are forthcoming).

Follow #NHRockstheVote on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram and help us spread the word to encourage more young people to vote this election season.
