AIGA Get Out the Vote Initiative: AIGA Get Out the Vote is a civic engagement initiative that wields the power of design to motivate American citizens to register and cast their ballots in U.S. elections. The 2022 Get Out the Vote campaign invites AIGA members to advocate for civic engagement through voter education, registration, and access ahead of the November 8, 2022 elections. As part of this year’s campaign, AIGA members are invited to submit posters to our Creative Commons gallery and help educate citizens and drive participation in the midterm elections. Additionally, AIGA is partnering with Nonprofit VOTE and the League of Women Voters to amplify its call for posters so nonprofit organizations and election officials can access resources.

Original, nonpartisan posters designed by AIGA members will be available for printing and public distribution. AIGA has also provided online resources for members of the community to use in their local efforts.

AIGA’s Design For Democracy Initiative: Since 1998, AIGA’s Design for Democracy initiative has applied design tools and thinking to increase civic participation. By making interactions between the U.S. government and its citizens more understandable, efficient, and trustworthy, designers become more vocal citizens and make democracy more sound.
