Enough has already been said about the beyond crazy 2016 presidential campaign so we’ll spare you, but one thing that hasn’t gotten enough air time yet is voting, you know, that thing you have to do to elect a president—and yet only 57.5% of registered voters actually turned up to do it in 2012.
Why is it so hard to show up and check a box? That’s something I don’t intend to tackle here, but I know we can do better, and this year we really need to. So we’re asking graphic designers to do something (that they already love to do) and design a poster for AIGA’s 2016 Get Out the Vote campaign, “our civic engagement initiative launched in partnership with the League of Women Voters that wields the power of design to motivate the American public to register and turn out to vote in the 2016 general election, as well as local elections to come.”
Submit your nonpartisan poster design via our online submittal form, which includes fields for your social handles so we can share it (tagging you, of course). Why nonpartisan? As a 501(c)(3) organization (a.k.a. not-for-profit) it’s against the law for us to intervene, directly or indirectly, in any political campaign for elective public office. So save those pro- or anti-Trump/Cruz/Rubio/Sanders/Clinton/etc. posters for your personal feed, k?
And if you haven’t registered to vote yet (not judging), you can register quickly and easily via vote411.
