The Hartford Foundation is encouraging Greater Hartford residents to get out and vote in the 2016 elections with our new campaign: "My Hope. My Voice. My Vote."
We want to cast a positive light around voting by reminding everyone how good it feels to vote, and why it's so important. This nonpartisan initiative will feature a combination of short, first person videos, each telling a personal story of their voting experience, combined with useful facts about voting in Connecticut, such as how to register and where to find your polling place.
We are joined in our effort by other community foundations around the state, including The Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut, Connecticut Community Foundation and Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, as well as MetroHartford Alliance and the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy. If your organization is interested in joining the campaign, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that everyone will head to their local polling place this November and vote in local, state and national elections. Your vote is important.
