How It’s New York: Since the 2008 U.S. Presidential election, more than 2.5 million newly naturalized U.S. citizens have become eligible to vote; approximately 15% live in the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut metro area. 
The conventions are over now, but the campaign is going on– big time! And there’s more to being a citizen than sharing funny things on Facebook. Get out the vote! Thanks to L.E. McCullough for presenting info on this “new voting video.” Larry points out that:
Currently, out of 169 nations, the U.S. ranks 120th in turnout of its registered voters … a percentage slightly above Benin, slightly below Dominican Republic. 
Though the video pertains only to New Jersey, during the last year 41 states have made significant voting rule changes, especially with regard to the personal ID needed to vote at the polling place.
