Ohio's 'I Voted' Sticker To Get an Update With New Design Competition Open to Teens


  • Scene Archives Photo
In an effort to get young people excited about Ohio's voting process, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose has announced a brand new voting sticker design competition exclusively for teens in grades 6-12.

Yes, the "I Ohio Voting" sticker (shown above) is soon to be replaced with a fresh image created by someone who most likely is not eligible to vote yet in this country.

"Ohioans wear this sticker proudly — whether they’ve voted by mail, during one of Ohio’s 28 days of early voting, or in person on Election Day," LaRose said in a statement. “We want students to have fun, be creative, and when the time comes to select a winner – we want them to vote!”

For the competition, LaRose and his team will choose their favorite designs. Those will then be placed online for all Ohioians, regardless of age, to vote on and decide the best one.

All Ohio teens can head to Sticker.Ohio.gov to enter their design, which must be circular in shape, through April 28.
