Lebanon, TN – Wilson County’s inaugural “I Voted” and “Future Voter” sticker contest is underway in the Wilson County Schools. The winning stickers will be used for the 2024 Election cycle.
The Wilson County Election Commission is currently preparing for three elections in 2024 including the November presidential election. The popular “I Voted “ stickers are a badge of honor worn by voters to both show they have exercised their right to vote and to encourage others to participate.
Tammy Smith, Administrator of Elections said, “We are eager to include a student designed “I Voted” sticker to excite voters about the upcoming election season and to encourage future voters to share their civic pride through their creative talents.”
Working with art departments in Wilson County Schools, this project is a partnership between the Election Commission and Josh Johnston and Amy Gullion of the Wilson County School System. This is a program that Smith hopes will continue in future years. “Providing the opportunity for students to become involved in the election process will hopefully instill a desire to be a voter when they turn 18,” Smith continued.
The contest is currently open to all Wilson County students. The sticker designs will be submitted by April 21st for consideration by the Wilson County School Board and the winners will be recognized in the Spring of 2023. The winning designs for “I Voted” and “Future Voter” stickers will be handed out to voters beginning with the March 5, 2024 Presidential Preference Primary.
