The mission of Hudson Valley Votes is to inspire our community to get out and vote. We produce events that generate enthusiasm, foster awareness and provide a platform for candidates and officials to address voters directly, while raising money for progressive causes. We bring these elements together with the support of our community through art, music and activism.


To our friends and supporters, thank you for all of your love. Stay safe. Stay Focused. Register. Make your voices heard and vote!

An evening of music, performance, activism and hope

The choice is ours — The change is ours

This is our night, leading up to the crucial local elections, to build on enthusiasm, unite the people of the Hudson Valley and mobilize our communities to take back these pivotal seats across New York State.

HUDSON VALLEY VOTES 2018 was an incredible and humbling success. Artists, speakers and politicians from all over our beautiful valley came together to support our right to be a voice in the democratic process and to stand up for our values. We had appearances by Natalie Merchant, Aaron Dessner (The National), Mary Stuart Masterson, Resistance Revival Chorus, Bruce Molsky, Simi Stone, Paul Rudd, Eve Ensler, Dar Williams, Rachael Yamagata, Gail Ann Dorsey, Jack DeJohnette, Justin Vivian Bond, Ian Felice, The Rock Academy, Zach Djanikian, Carmel Holt, Energy Dance Company, and progressive candidates statewide including NY19 Candidate Antonio Delgado. 


It’s up to us all to keep our democracy alive, please join our list to stay up to date on this year’s action!

There has never been a time in the history of this country when it was more important to vote. With a sitting President who does not believe in global climate change, we need to vote like our lives depend on it…because they do.

Hudson Valley Votes is helping to consolidate and unite the progressive electorate in upstate New York. We need you; join us.
