I’m digging these posters from AIGA’s Get Out the Vote 2008.
A juried set of 24 posters were professionally printed and distributed nationally in early September. The posters have been hung in the windows of storefronts, restaurants, dormitories, laundromats and elsewhere around the country. You too can participate in getting out the vote by viewing the online gallery, and then downloading, printing and posting your favorite designs around your community.
With the countdown to probably one of the biggest choices Americans are going face in the years to come, the Presidential Elections will be here in no time. In an effort to get the word out for people to vote for their future, Declare Yourself1 partnered up with some of Hollywood’s stars to get the message across. In this case, they did well using “reverse psychology”:
A couple of bits that stood out for me are the ones from Jonah Hill and Sarah Silverman. Comedy is comedy. It’s just bound to get laughs but at the same time, tell the truth. “Truth in jest” right?
Anyways, GO VOTE! Not only does it give your thoughts more weight when debating things ranging from the Economy to Global Warming, but it also allows you to say “YES” when asked in the middle of the debate, “did you vote?”
A couple of ways to register online:
Voter registration deadlines begin this upcoming Saturday, October 4th. Go do it now before its too late. It’ll only take a couple of minutes to register. Remember, don’t complain if you can’t even exercise your right to vote. I hope that helps.
Only a couple more days till November 4th, Declare Yourself produced part 2 of the campaign:
- Declare Yourself is the national nonpartisan, nonprofit voter initiative aimed at registering America’s 18-year-olds to vote in the 2008 primaries and general election. DeclareYourself.com is your place for news and information about the candidates and issues, answers to your questions about registering and voting, and an easy-to-use online registration tool.
