Voter outreach campaign seeks to increase engagement in 2022 midterm elections
New York, NY—In the lead-up to the 2022 midterm elections, AIGA, the professional association for design, has created resources to encourage all voting-age populations to exercise their civic rights.
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 members can submit a poster here.
Poster submissions are open to AIGA members only. If you would like to submit a poster, and are currently not a member, you can join here.
“By continuing to advocate for civic engagement, the design community is making a tangible difference,” said AIGA Executive Director, Bennie F. Johnson. “Through voter education, registration, and access, we are working to enhance our democracy and make it stronger. I’m proud of the work our design community is doing to inspire their fellow citizens to get out the vote this November.”
“Part of AIGA's mission is to advance design as a cultural force and a tool that can drive action. Our community's passion for positive change is powerfully reflected each election year when our membership engages with us and our partners to submit their designs to help Get Out the Vote,” said AIGA Design for Democracy Chair and National Board Member, Frances Yllana.
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.
