Senior to Senior voter registration school graduation celebration

Join Third Act’s intergenerational “Senior-to-Senior” initiative to help graduating high school seniors in your life register to vote.  

Record a Tribute Video
About Life Milestones (Like Voting!)

This graduation season, Third Act wants to share your invaluable voting experiences with the next generation of voters! Using the Tribute video platform, you can record a video—of yourself, or with a graduating high school senior, or a teacher in your life— reflecting on prompts like these:

  • Reflecting on major life milestones (i.e. turning 18, graduating, becoming eligible to vote, etc.), what are some ways voting and civic engagement have had a direct impact on your life or community?
  • Have you been involved with election campaigns? Have you been a poll worker? Have you canvassed or encouraged other voters?
  • What makes you keep voting? What motivates you to be a regular, dependable voter?
  • What motivates you to register younger voters? What encouragement do you have for younger voters?
  • Please share a personal voting story with us!

Here are detailed instructions:

Record your video:

  • Go to Third Act’s Tribute platform
  • Follow the instructions there to Record and Upload your short video (look for the red button)
  • Enter your name and email address, or sign-in with Facebook.
