President Hanlon reminds members of the Dartmouth community that engaging in this and every election cycle is both our right and responsibility and is key to keeping our democracy strong.
Dear students and colleagues,
With election season underway, it is incumbent upon all of us to understand the issues of the day and learn about the candidates before us. And it is the responsibility of every eligible voter to participate in the electoral process on November 8 – Election Day.
The right to vote is the most powerful tool we have in shaping the country and communities in which we live and work. So, please check eligibility requirements for the state in which you are planning to vote at vote.gov and ensure that you are meeting any deadlines associated with voter registration and/or mail-in ballots.
A Dartmouth Votes registration drive for students is scheduled to take place on the Collis Patio this Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. In addition, All In To Vote provides a powerful and easy-to-use tool designed to help students build a personalized voting plan.
In my 2021 Commencement address, I reminded our graduates that they mustn't take for granted those things in life that are most important – including our democracy. Engaging in this and every election cycle is both our right and responsibility and is key to keeping our democracy strong.
Thanks very much and see you at the polls.
Philip J. Hanlon '77
