(NEW YORK, NY) -- Hamilton, in partnership with Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote, have released “The Election of 2022,” a lyric rewrite video for National Voter Registration Day promoting the importance of voting. The song directs viewers to Hamilton’s Ham4Progress website, which includes When We All Vote’s tools and resources for people to understand what’s needed to vote in their state.
The video features cast members from the Hamilton Broadway company including Miguel Cervantes, Tamar Greene, Aubin Wise, Lauren Boyd, Shonica Gooden, Roddy Kennedy and Gabriella Sorrentino. The new lyrics are by Hamilton’s musical director, Ian Weinberger.
Hamilton’s previous Get Out the Vote initiatives have included working with VoteRiders & VoteForward, resulting in more than 7,000 Hamilton volunteers contacting over 340,000 voters through direct letter writing campaigns.
Ham4Progress is a community highlighting social justice causes, a gathering place for meaningful discussion, and a platform for organizations Hamilton supports. Run by a diverse collective of Hamilton cast members and staff, this is a platform where Hamilton inspires its community, fans, and company members to action.
