Behavioral health care group in Morris Co. helps clients take part in election process
A behavioral health care group in Morris County helped its clients take part in the election process Wednesday.
The Morris County Board of Elections teamed up with NewBridge, an organization that helps people with a mental illness, to teach the election process step by step to the mentally ill.
Everyone at the center received a Morris County voter's guide and got the chance to register to vote. After the clients filled out a voter registration application, NewBridge taught them how to use a voting machine by holding a "mock" election.
The Morris County superintendent of elections office gave the lecture. The deadline to register to vote is October 4.
