Overview

Prince William County’s Office of Elections is seeking a way for voters to showcase county pride with our 2024 “I Voted” Sticker Design Contest. The chosen sticker design will be used to represent voters from all across the county, both on Election Day and year-round on the PWC Office of Elections website. 

 

The contest is open to all Prince William County residents, regardless of voter registration status. Submissions are encouraged from both individuals and groups.

 

The contest is open from Monday, Feb. 5 - Friday, March 15, 2024

Guidelines

Participants must be residents of Prince William County Virginia and will have their residence confirmed by Office of Elections Staff.

 

The phrase "I Voted" must be legible and included in the design. Designs must be in a circular shape. Final designs will be resized by Elections staff to be printed at 2" diameter. 

Entries will be evaluated based on a) uniqueness of the design in relation to Prince William County and its distinct county identity; b) clarity, strength, and effectiveness of design; and c) overall aesthetics or eye-catching ability. 

All entries should be saved as a PDF document and submitted electronically via this entry form.
