Launched on President’s Day, AIGA‘s Get Out the Vote campaign 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. This year, in partnership with the League of Women Voters, AIGA civic engagement initiative will Get Out the Vote by:
- Presenting an online gallery of original, nonpartisan posters for printing and public distribution (below)
- Organizing exhibitions in conjunction with the Republican National Convention (Cleveland, July 18-21, 2016), Democratic National Convention (Philadelphia, July 25–28, 2016), and AIGA Design Conference (Las Vegas, October 17–19, 2016)
- Programming local events throughout the year organized by AIGA chapters and student groups across the country in partnership with League of Women Voters affiliates and other local partners
Many thanks to Neenah Paper and O’Neil Printing for their generous support of this national initiative.
