“Because of our state’s first-in-the-nation primary status, every four years Granite Staters are given an invaluable opportunity to get an up-close and personal view of the presidential primary process. We must ensure that our students also benefit from New Hampshire’s unique position, and this Convention is a great way to help our students engage directly with our democratic process and meet with local and federal politicians in person. I applaud New England College for hosting this incredibly valuable event.”
