NHPR will be broadcast live from Keene on Friday, November 4th morning edition and Everything considered. With the midterm elections on November 8 just days away, NHPR will examine issues surrounding the state of democracy and engage with members of the local community on issues affecting the Monadnock area and the state.

The event will be held on the first floor of the LP Young Student Center on the Keene State College campus. NHPR collects community feedback from people living in and around Keene on the issues that matter to them, which NHPR uses to shape the focus of its programs. Hosts Rick Ganley and Julia Furukawa will conduct live interviews during the newscasts.

There will also be a live NH News Recap in the morning at 7:45 am where reporters will discuss the latest political news in the final days leading up to the election.

Seating is limited and the Young Student Center will open to the public at 7:00 am and people are welcome to stop by between then and 7:00 pm to meet NHPR staff.

This project is part of the work of America Amplified, an initiative funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to support community engagement journalism in public media. NHPR is one of 29 other public media stations across the country working to ensure eligible voters have the information they need to participate in the democratic process.

This is just part of NHPR’s effort to inform and engage voters this election season. NHPR also hosts a series of debates and interviews with front-runners, publishes policy statements, provides voter resources and more.
