Get Out the Vote 2008
AIGA invites designers from across the United States to create nonpartisan posters—and YouTube submissions—that inspire the American public to participate in the electoral process and vote for a presidential candidate in the 2008 general election.
You can participate by browsing the Get Out the Vote online gallery below and then downloading, printing and hanging your favorites in your hometown. To download a poster, click on any of the thumbnail images on the left. When you've found one you like, just click on the larger version on the right to download a PDF of the poster.

Get Out the Vote, an AIGA Design for Democracy initiative since the 2000 election, enables designers to engage in the public arena by contributing to a coordinated voter mobilization campaign. The 2008 poster campaign builds on the efforts made in 2004, when participants created more than 50,000 AIGA posters that were displayed in public places in communities across the nation and made available as online PDFs for anyone to download, print and post independently.
By motivating eligible citizens to register and turn out on election day, Get Out the Vote fulfills an ongoing AIGA objective of demonstrating the value of design to the public, public officials and business by providing a clear call to action for an activity that is important to everyone.
