AIGA 2016 Get Out the Vote Initiative

Please submit your poster before April 15, 2016, to be considered for the local exhibition.

AIGA is relaunching Get Out the Vote for 2016. This civic engagement initiative 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 for the first time with the League of Women Voters, AIGA 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 2016), Democratic National Convention (Philadelphia, July 2016), and AIGA Design Conference (Las Vegas, October 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
