VoteHillsborough Voter Registration and Art Contest

VoteHillsborough Art Contest Header Image featuring an animated kid wearing an 'I'm a future voter!" sticker and quote from Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer. "When we’re out in the community sharing information about voting and elections, we give Future Voter stickers to children as a reminder that they will be able to participate in our democracy one day, too. They love the stickers, and getting a sticker that’s been designed by someone their age will be even more special."

Hey Kids! Here's What We Are Asking You to Do

Design a Future Voter sticker that you would be proud to wear. It should be patriotic, inspiring and fun – a reminder to others that you will participate in our democracy when you get older.

We will select three elementary school finalists and three middle school finalists. An elementary school and middle school finalist will each be named grand prize winners. The grand prize winners’ design will be reproduced as 2”x2” round stickers and given to young people throughout Hillsborough County. All of the finalists will be recognized at a School Board meeting and receive prizes from our contest sponsors. The art will also be featured on our social media channels, in displays at our offices and in other outreach efforts conducted by the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office.

High School Students, Are You Ready to Vote? – the Registration Contest

During the fall and spring semesters, we conduct voter registration drives in the high schools across our county. The three schools with the most successful voter registration drives (based on percentage of senior class) will receive a plaque and be recognized in front of the School Board.
