City holds ‘I voted!’ sticker contest
The “I voted!” sticker has become something of a badge of honor for Americans on Election Day, sometimes leading to healthy political debate and even discounts.
This year, NYC Votes is holding a competition to spruce up the current sticker design, giving New Yorkers a chance to show off their civic and artistic pride.
New Yorkers interested in entering can submit designs for a 2-inch-square sticker with a “pro-voting” message through July 28. Designs must be nonpartisan and incorporate the NYC Votes logo. Entrants must first “like” the NYC Votes Facebook page to submit.
The Campaign Finance Board, which runs NYC Votes, will choose finalists before a public vote on Facebook on July 30.
The design with the most public votes will be distributed to voters throughout the five boroughs come November. The winning designer also gets two tickets to an official debate sponsored by the Campaign Finance Board.
The contest is open to U.S. residents aged 18 and over. There is no limit to design submissions. Offical rules can be found on the NYC Votes Facebook page, www.facebook.com/nycvotes.
