    YORK, Pa., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- On behalf of Pennsylvania Gov. Tom
 Ridge, Commonwealth Secretary Kim Pizzingrilli today inducted eight York
 County residents into the Pennsylvania Voter Hall of Fame.
     "These Pennsylvanians take seriously their right -- and duty -- to vote,"
 Secretary Pizzingrilli said.  "They don't make excuses.  They make voting a
 priority.  As we honor these Hall of Famers today, we hope every Pennsylvania
 voter will share their commitment."
     The Voter Hall of Fame was established to acknowledge and honor
 Pennsylvanians who have voted in every November election for at least
 50 consecutive years.  Applications for membership may be obtained by calling
 county voter-registration offices.

 Perry; Schuylkill; Somerset; Susquehanna; Tioga; Wayne; Westmoreland; and
 Wyoming.
     Those inducted during today's ceremony will have their names added to a
 book that is part of the Pennsylvania Voter Exhibit and Voter Hall of Fame in
 Harrisburg.  The permanent exhibit, which documents the state's political
 heritage, was created through a partnership between the State Department and
 the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.  The department also
 maintains a database of inductees, which can be found on the PA PowerPort at
 www.state.pa.us or directly at www.dos.state.pa.us.
