WASHINGTON, DC - NAB has distributed two public service announcements to member radio stations urging citizens to vote in tomorrow's midterm elections. Both a 30 second and 60 second version of the Election 2006 PSA can be downloaded from NAB's Web site.
The PSAs feature the song "America the Beautiful" and include a voice-over which tells listeners, among other things, "This November, use your voice. Make your choice. Vote."
The PSAs, which have been available to stations since October, are part of a greater campaign by NAB to raise awareness of the importance of voting. As part of that campaign, NAB has also distributed an election guide to stations, which contains a variety of ideas for voter education, script PSAs and promotional ideas that will help stations spread the word about the importance of casting an informed vote.
The National Association of Broadcasters is a trade association that advocates on behalf of more than 8,300 free, local radio and television stations and also broadcast networks before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the Courts. Information about NAB can be found at www.nab.org.
