Election Day

Today, Tuesday, November 3, Election Day is a state holiday. We are not holding classes and encouraging the UIC Design community to help get out the vote. This “vote!” logo was designed by the UIC Design class of 2001, the first group of UIC students to engage in the election design initiative of AIGA Design for Democracy. Work by our faculty and students—developed in Chicago with the Office of the Cook County Clerk and in Oregon (the nation’s first all vote-by-mail state since 2000)—went on to be the basis of federal election design guidelines distributed by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.
