Details

No parties or candidate endorsements. No (Anti) negative rhetoric.

Your goal is to print a poster that will get people to vote in time for their voices to be heard.

In this call for submissions, you’ll see that there is a new challenge you can answer—some states need to create advanced awareness for the mail-in ballot and the rules around it. Some battleground states are even making the deadlines for requests so close that it is likely that those ballots won’t reach their destination in time to be useful. Use the chart to identify the challenges state-by-state. Feel free to go deep with your poster submission. We have a network of partners in each battleground and swing state to get your persuasive posters seen by as many people as possible.

FAQ: What happens to $11.03 each of these posters?

This goes towards the postage to send the prints out to the people who collaborate on the project and the helpers who activate in the swing and battleground states.

It also pays for The Printing and sending of posters FOR FREE to the cities where we are active: in the key battleground and swing states.

Gratitude

Tons, from your colleague printers and fellow citizens.
