New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way Releases Educational Election Video Series

Video Series Helps Voters Better Understand Election Process

Trenton, N.J. – New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way has released the first in a series of animated educational videos designed to explain the voting and election process to New Jersey citizens.

The first set of videos from the series debuts today and provides an overview to the entire series that will cover topics such as voter registration, the three ways to vote in New Jersey, tabulation of votes, and election certification. To view and share the videos, click here.

“It is extremely important to build trust in the election process and remove any mystery for citizens who want to better understand how the system works,” said Secretary Way, whose animated avatar appears in the introductory video. “This video series will answer questions voters may have and provide a fun and informative method for understanding New Jersey’s elections.”

The videos, each of which range in length from 90 seconds to three minutes long, can be found on the New Jersey Division of Elections’ website VOTE.NJ.GOV and the Division of Elections’ social media feeds.

Assistant Secretary of State Lauren Zyriek Enriquez, who serves as Acting Director of the New Jersey Division of Elections, has led the effort to develop the series as part of the Division’s focus on voter education.

“As voters continued to be exposed to and even targeted by incorrect election information, it is vital that election officials communicate the facts about how our elections work,” said Assistant Secretary Zyriek Enriquez. “This video series will share everything New Jersey voters need to know to trust and participate in our elections.”

Secretary Way encourages county and local election officials to incorporate the video series in their own voter education programming. The Division of Elections will be working with students, civic groups, and other election stakeholders to ensure the series reaches as many New Jersey voters as possible.

“We hope these videos will be a fun and effective way for voters to learn more about the elections process in New Jersey,” said Secretary Way. “We want to make sure that voters are receiving and sharing information like this directly from trusted official sources like the Division of Elections or our county and local election officials.”
