TRENTON, NEW JERSEY – The Hall Institute of Public Policy and the League of Women Voters of New Jersey have released a Spanish-language version of their 5-minute voting guide video “What Happens When You Go to Vote in New Jersey: A Step-by-Step Guide”.
The Spanish-language version is titled “¿Qué sucede cuando usted vaya a votar en Nueva Jersey? Guía paso a paso” and was produced by Video Imprint.
Both videos are on the Hall Institute web site at www.hallnj.org and can be linked to, downloaded and distributed without charge.
“For this year’s election, New Jersey has an estimated 677,000 Hispanic eligible voters, a figure that constitutes 11% of the state’s total eligible voters,” says Hall Institute Executive Director Michael P. Riccards. “Many will be first-time voters and may be disinclined to vote because they think the process is difficult or time-consuming. This video shows that 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.”

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
