Going All Out to Get Out The Vote
Recognizing the importance of the “get out to vote campaign,” Southern Jersey Family Medical Centers staff have been busy registering patients at their 7 medical offices in southern New Jersey. To highlight those efforts, newspaper releases were sent to all the major media sources encouraging people in the community to stop in any of their sites to register or register to vote on National Voter Registration Day. To date, that effort, coupled with an ongoing drive, has netted over 930 registered voters.
