In order to generate additional voter interest in the statewide primary on Sept. 8 and the General Election on Nov. 3, the Board of Elections has launched the state’s first ‘I Voted’ sticker contest. The public is encouraged to submit creative designs for a new sticker for voters to receive after voting.

Entry submissions will be accepted during the month of March through a web page created especially for the contest. The site will go live in several weeks and contain additional information about the contest rules and requirements. The Board hopes to see some uniquely Rhode Island designs that voters can proudly show off as they leave the polls!

In April, the seven members of the Board and the Rhode Island Secretary of State will each choose a finalist. The Board of Elections will then allow the public to choose their favorite design in an online vote and announce a winner in early May.

The new stickers will be printed and distributed to voters at the polls on Sept. 8 and Nov. 3.
