Since 2000, AIGA has activated its community of designers across the U.S. and beyond to Get Out the Vote every four years. The campaign is part of Design for Democracy, an AIGA initiative to increase civic participation through design.
In 2020, AIGA will recognize the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote in 1920 with a special edition of AIGA Get Out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote. This commemorates the first legislation for women’s voting rights. Not until the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965 were voting rights of all women protected and enforced.
To see work submitted to past campaigns, visit Get Out the Vote 2008, Get Out the Vote 2012, and Get Out the Vote 2016. Also visit Building Community Power 2018.
Visit the League’s award-winning election information website, VOTE411.org, to find out about upcoming elections in your community.
