Commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the passage of the 26th Amendment

How did 18 year olds get right to vote? May 13th is a special day in New Hampshire...

The 26th Amendment was passed by Congress on March 23, 1971, and ratified July 1, 1971. New Hampshire ratified the 26th Amendment on May 13th, 1971. The 26th amendment granted the right to vote to American citizens aged eighteen or older.

NH House Representatives who were directly involved share their little-known story of the grassroots effort to pass this amendment, accompanied by new Representatives as well.  Join us in this celebration with history, song, q&a, and more!

These two days were so valuable! It's the best PD I've had in a long time. I enjoyed hearing what teachers do in other parts of the country. Judge Rendell coming really made an impact on me. Her coming made me feel that what we do is important.
