In the Fall of 2008, the WHRO Center for Regional Citizenship talked with several citizens about what’s at stake for the future of our democracy. These six two-minute videos showcase the voices of young Americans discussing how they engage in the political process and why they think it is important to build a more responsive government.
The videos were made possible through support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Video Your Vote was produced in partnership between YouTube, PBS and NewsHour. Throughout the day on November 4, 2008, citizens documented their voting experiences on video and uploaded them to YouTube, enabling the world to watch pivotal moments in this historic election as they unfolded.
Several of the videos captured by WHRO representatives were featured on PBS’ online coverage of election day.
