Each September, a group of community organizations hold a free concert at the Morehead Park trailhead to promote voter registration among young adults. This year’s event is this Thursday, September 26, from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Here’s what Thursday’s event is about:
Show of Hands is a collaborative effort of Face to Face GSO, synerG and Greensboro Jaycees to take over Downtown Greensboro and engage young people in November elections.
In its third year, Show of Hands will aim to increase voter awareness through an outdoor concert. On Thursday, September 26th, Show of Hands will rock downtown Greensboro as a free, outdoor music experience with the opportunity for new and active voters to learn about the upcoming local, state and national elections.
Show of Hands will launch at 6:00pm at the Downtown Greenway Morehead Park Trailhead Parking with live performances. Attendees can connect with information about voting districts, meet candidates, and discuss issues at hand.
Show of Hands is a free, community event hosted in partnership with community development group for youngish people, Face to Face GSO, and young professional organizations synerG and Greensboro Jaycees. The experience was created with the intent to make sure voters ages 18-39 can begin or continue to build the young-adult voter momentum in Greensboro by offering on-the-ground accessibility and voter resources.
