Non-Partisan Voter Education

MISSION STATEMENT

HASHTAG VOTE is a non-partisan voter education group. We work to make voter registration easy, teach communities what it means to vote, and motivate new participants to turn out on election days.

VOTING

MATTERS

 

ABOUT US

Founded in 2020, HASHTAG VOTE knows that every vote matters. We believe that the strongest way to create the world an individual wishes to see is to express their right to vote. Our goal is to give potential voters the information they need to register to vote in a clear and concise way. To inspire these voters to turn out, we help them identify the issues that matter to them, and provide resources to help them explore their voting priorities. Knowing that every chance to vote is a chance to have your voice heard, we educate our communities on how, when, where and why to vote.

JANINE (SHE/HER)

CO-FOUNDER & WEB MANAGER

A native German, Janine was a child the day the Berlin Wall came down, and while she didn’t know it then, this, and learning about the vast differences between the former East and West Germany, would later spark her passion for democracy. After moving to the U.S. in 2015, Janine became involved in registering voters, helping inspire others to shape their own communities. A former small business owner in the web and graphic design industry, she followed her heart to the nonprofit sector in 2018. Janine founded HASHTAG VOTE as a passion project in 2020, a natural progression to continue to help others actively engage in their futures.

ALISA (SHE/HER)

CO-FOUNDER & CONTENT MANAGER

While having the chance to travel extensively in her early 20's, Alisa's passion for voting began when she experienced first-hand what life is like in countries that lack access to a democratic process. When she moved to a state where elections were almost always won or lost with razor-thin margins, Alisa became more and more aware of the importance of each vote. In addition to her work volunteering in a variety of political roles, Alisa has worked in nonprofit management since 2017. Alisa earned her Bachelor's in History from Salem State University and is currently pursuing her Master’s in Public Administration at Framingham State University.

Bringing her leadership skills and drive to help others with her, Denise decided to enter the nonprofit world in 2018, where she quickly moved into a management position. Serving in nonprofit management since 2019, Denise brings to HASHTAG VOTE a wealth of experience in data collection and administration.
