The Next​ "I Voted" Sticker Design!

The City Clerk's Office, with support from the Ann Arbor Public Art Commission, sought out local artists, including students, to design the City's 2020 "I Voted" stickers and a team of judges narrowed the choices down to a group of exceptional finalists. Public voting is now complete and winners were announced at the June 15 City Council meeting!​

Background

The City is currently preparing for the 2020 Presidential Election and that includes planning for voter turnout and the popular "I Voted" stickers. The City Clerk’s Office is eager to include a locally designed custom “I Voted” sticker to get voters excited about the upcoming election season.
 
“I Voted” stickers are a badge of honor proudly worn by voters to both declare they exercised their voting rights and to influence others to do the same. To increase a sense of community among local voters and make voting more fun, the City Clerk’s Office is hosting an “I Voted” sticker design contest for new stickers to be distributed at the polls with the 2020 Presidential Election next November. This bit of art, combined with other efforts such as the statewide encouragement for voters sharing selfies outside of their polling places, will serve to help get out the vote and encourage new voters to share their civic pride.

Thank you judges
