Members of New Jersey’s National Guard, led by Brigadier General and Deputy Adjutant General Maria Falco-Dodson, will be joined by family, friends, supporters; New Jersey Attorney General Peter C. Harvey and actor Joe Piscopo to tape a Public Service Announcement for New Jersey’s “BE POWERFUL, BE HEARD” voting initiative. Prior to the taping, Harvey will host a brief program to thank the New Jersey National Guard for participating in this first ever effort to encourage military personnel and other New Jerseyans to register and to vote in the upcoming gubernatorial election and other local and statewide elections.

The purpose of the taping is for military personnel to encourage other military personnel around the world to register and vote. The PSA and the event itself will be archived and a copy will be forwarded to all military personnel in Iraq and throughout the world through the Defense Department via the Pentagon Channel and the Air Force News Service as well as local networks and on the web in New Jersey. The program and taping are open to the press.

This program is part of the Be Powerful Be Heard campaign of the New Jersey Attorney General's Office, designed to implement HAVA, to raise voter awareness throughout the state and encourage citizens to vote and participate in the electoral process.
