GET OUT TO VOTE

In the past 50 years, the United States has had two key elections determined by the slimmest of margins. In 2000, the difference in votes between George Bush and Al Gore was about 540,000 - about of 1% of the total votes cast in the election! That wasn't even the closest race in the last five decades. In 1960, John F. Kennedy won the presidency over Richard Nixon by less than 120,000 votes. In fact, that was less than one vote per precinct! As you can see, one person can make a difference! That person could be you!

In this day and age, voting is one of the most important actions you can take as a citizen. Are you registered? If not, IBEW Local 164 would like to help!

The State of New Jersey has voter registration forms available on its Website. Instructions may be found at

If you're registered, but will be away from home at election time, you may vote by mail. Simply complete a Vote By Mail Ballot Application, which may be found at:

Voting isn't just a right, it's a responsibility! Be responsible. If you're not registered, do it now! And if you are registered, be sure to vote in the next election!
