GENESEO, N.Y., Jan. 12, 2024 — The Livingston County Board of Elections (BoE) is launching the County’s first “I Voted” sticker design contest, a new initiative for Livingston County students aimed at promoting and increasing participation in local elections.
The BoE is asking students in 5th-12th grades to create a unique logo design that includes the words “I voted.” BoE officials will print the winning entry on circular two-inch stickers given out at polling sites on election days and also use the design for digital graphics promoting upcoming elections. The contest begins this Monday, January 15, and all submissions are due to the BoE by March 29, 2024.
“Our aim is to give young folks in our community a creative platform for civic engagement,” said Livingston County Board of Elections Commissioner Gary Nageldinger. “Involving our youth in the democratic process from an early age is important for shaping future engaged citizens. We’re very excited to offer this contest to our students and see their creativity on display during the next election.”
Students or their teachers may submit finished artwork in photo, PDF, PNG, JPG or JPEG file formats to firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline. The BoE will select the top five entries and place them on their website for a final public vote during the month of April 2024. The winning design will appear on election-related materials until the November 2025 general election when a new design will be chosen in the next “I Voted” Sticker design contest.
