Trenton, N.J. (AP) -- Two New Jersey lawmakers want to give people an extra incentive to vote.
They're proposing a special state lottery just for voters, with a one million dollar jackpot.
A bill sponsored by the two Middlesex County assemblymen would create an annual December 31st lottery. Only registered voters who cast a ballot that year in a primary or general election would be eligible.
Those who voted in both elections would get two entries.
The million-dollar prize would be paid for with unclaimed winnings from the regular state lottery, voluntary donations and investments of the prize fund.
A similar proposal in Arizona was rejected by voters last fall.
