N.J. Family Seeks To Inspire Voters With Gubernatorial Corn Maze

CHESTER, N.J.(CBSNewYork) -- Corn mazes were created for family fun and can be found all over New Jersey. Now, a farm in Chester has built a maze that aims to inspire visitors to take part in the Democratic process.

Some residents had difficulty identifying the faces of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Barbara Buono cut into the cornfield, CBS 2's Vanessa Murdock reported.

"No, that doesn't look like Christie he's got a fatter face than that," said Dorothy Tull.

Others were spot on in their identification.

"The two candidates for governor. I saw it on Channel 2 news this morning," Sam Healy said.

For more than a decade the Davis family has given the corn maze at Stony Hill Farm a special theme. In 2012 it was "The Great Train Adventure. This year the family decided to carve the faces of New Jersey's gubernatorial candidates into their corn.

Visitors can saunter across Governor Christie's chin or get lost in Buono's eyes.

"We felt like it ties into society. What's going on with people today," Brandt Davis explained.

The family wants to get New Jersey residents interested in the race for governor and to inspire them to work. The maze was designed by a puzzle artist who turned the blue print over to the family who then cleared it by hand.

Visitors can walk the maze when it opens to the public on August 31.
