• Description

Across the country, The Civics Center consistently finds that when young people are registered to vote, they turn out at high rates. In fact, a 2022 report by TCC showed that 83% of New Hampshire 18-year-olds who were registered turned out to vote in the 2022 midterms.

The Civics Center, in partnership with Open Democracy, an on-the-ground non-partisan organization dedicated to political equality for all, developed a program aimed at boosting NH high school voter registration. The pilot ran during the 2022/2023 school year and generated further student and faculty engagement in the Fall of 2023.

While there are many programs that are designed to reach college students, The Civics Center and Open Democracy program was designed specifically to focus on New Hampshire's own local high school students.
