Get Out the Vote is a AIGA’s civic engagement initiative. Using the power of design, we will motivate Americans to register and turn out to vote in the 2016 presidential election and beyond. AIGA Atlanta is taking on the task of engaging Georgia before Election Day, and we’re calling our campaign “Fixin’ to Vote.”
Fixin’ to Vote
We hope every AIGA Atlanta member is registered and is Fixin’ to Vote this November, so now we want you to push the message and pledge it forward! We teamed up with RED Partners, Bennett Graphics, and Appleton Coated to create a toolkit to explain to others how easy it is to register—and most importantly, show up—to the polls. With Georgia projected to be a swing state this year, voter turnout is even more vital. Through the power of design, we’re making democracy fun again!
The strategy is focused on personal connection. We encourage you to pass out these informational flyers door-to-door in your neighborhood, organize your own pop-up voter registration event, offer rides to your network, or hand out I’m Fixin’ to Vote stickers to your friends and coworkers. Even your grandma can get on board!
We all love to smugly sport our “I’m a Georgia Voter” stickers on Election Day, and now you can post your selfie with even more swag! We revamped and redesigned our own version of the classic sticker. You’ll find a roll of them in your packet to distribute as you please. Wear it proudly on Election Day and offer one to anyone else who wants to tell the world that they “Voted Y’all!”
