TRENTON, NEW JERSEY – The Hall Institute of Public Policy and the League of Women Voters of New Jersey have created a 5-minute video public service announcement for first-time voters.

Titled “What Happens When You Go to Vote in New Jersey:  A Step-by-Step Guide”, the PSA was filmed and produced by Video Imprint at the Mercer County Board of Elections warehouse.

The video is on the Hall Institute web site at www.hallnj.org and can be linked to, downloaded and distributed for free by the public.

“We found a surprising number of registered voters are reluctant to actually cast a ballot because they are unsure what happens at the polling place,” says Hall Institute Executive Director Michael P. Riccards. “They think it might be time-consuming or confusing, or that they’ll have to submit special documentation, when – in reality – voting in New Jersey is a very simple and quick procedure.”

The League of Women Voters of New Jersey has been aiding citizen participation in voting and public policy issues since 1920 and currently has 37 active chapters across the state.

“Voting is both a right and a responsibility, and the League of Women Voters of New Jersey is committed to getting out the vote,” said Kerry Butch, the League’s Executive Director. “We are absolutely thrilled to partner with the Hall Institute to create this step-by-step guide to voting. We know it will be an invaluable resource to first-time voters who may feel slightly intimidated by the voting process.”

For questions about registering and voting in New Jersey, contact the League of Women Voters of New Jersey at 1-800-792-VOTE (8683) or visit the League web site at http://lwvnj.org.
