T-4 to Election Day

As Election Day approaches, President Hanlon reminds the Dartmouth community that it is the civic duty of every citizen eligible to vote in this country to exercise that right.

To the Dartmouth community,

With Election Day just four days away, I want to remind you that it is the civic duty of every citizen eligible to vote in this country to exercise that right.

Local officials here in Hanover and in cities and towns throughout the country work hard to preserve the integrity of our presidential, congressional, and state and local elections, and it is incumbent upon all of us to do our part and participate in the electoral process. So please, if you haven't done so already, cast your votes – either by absentee ballot or at the polls – for the candidates that you believe best represent the policies and values that are in the best interest of our country. I know I will.

I also want to remind you that as is the case with every election, it is inevitable that some will feel disappointed in the outcome. In addition, this year we are coping with a global pandemic, a non-traditional academic year and, for many, the stresses associated with the end of the academic term. Please know that there are ample support resources available to those who need them, including the Faculty/Employee Assistance Program (FEAP), the Office of Counseling and Human Development, the College chaplain's office, or the dean on call. Assistance is available 24 hours a day, every day, and can be accessed by calling Safety and Security at (603) 646-4000.

Sincerely,

Philip J. Hanlon '77

President
