2019 Election Candidates

The following are candidates for the office of 2020 New Hampshire’s Kid Governor®

The following fifth graders are the final candidates in the 2019 Statewide Election for the office of 2020 New Hampshire’s Kid Governor®. The candidates were nominated by the 5th graders in their schools and completed the necessary paperwork qualifying them to run for office.

Each candidate has created a campaign video (below) outlining why he or she wants to be New Hampshire’s Kid Governor; what leadership qualities he/she has; what community issue is important to him or her and why; and a three-point plan outlining ways for New Hampshire fifth graders to make a difference around that issue.

Fifth grade students in registered classes will watch these videos carefully to study the candidates’ platforms and inform their vote during the Statewide Election. The Statewide Election will take place November 4-12, 2019.
