Craig Miller Productions has collaborated with Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp to “Get Out the Vote” for the 2016 Election Season. The firm produced four multi language election videos for this campaign.
The videos feature children exercising their right to vote in Georgia. These tutorials are voiced in English, Hindi, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, and Vietnamese and encourage Georgia voter registration, absentee voting by mail, advance in-person voting, and Election Day voting.
“I want every eligible Georgian to have the information they need to take part in the electoral process,” stated Secretary Kemp. “These new resources will help voters who are non-English speakers know how to register to vote and prepare to cast their ballot.”
According to the SOS office, Kemp initiated this project with Craig Miller Productions to ensure every Georgian is informed on Election Day. Individuals can view the voter registration tutorials by visiting Secretary Kemp’s YouTube channel or the Elections Division’s website or by clicking the link above. Kemp has also been working with minority advocacy groups to promote the videos in various communities across the state. The General Election is November 8, 2016 and in-person voting occurs on electronic voting equipment in Georgia.
According to the SOS office, Georgia is not a “covered jurisdiction” under the federal Voting Rights Act to offer election information in other languages. Ballots and related election materials are printed in English. Currently, there are over 6.5 million registered voters in the Peach State.
Brian Kemp has been Secretary of State since January 2010. Among the office’s wide-ranging responsibilities, the Secretary of State is charged with conducting secure, accessible, and fair elections, the registration of corporations, and the regulation of securities, charities, and professional license holders.
