The Adams County Elections Department would like to have new, custom “I Voted” stickers for the upcoming 2022 elections and is seeking talented Adams County residents and students to design them.
“For the past two years, Adams County has had the most unique ‘I Voted’ stickers in the state thanks to this contest, and we plan to continue that tradition,” says Adams County Clerk & Recorder Josh Zygielbaum. “This year, we’re excited to open the contest up to adults as well as students. This is a great opportunity to involve the community in the elections process, and my office always looks forward to seeing the incredible designs that are submitted.”
Entrants can submit hand-drawn or digital artwork now through Friday, Feb. 4. Prizes will be awarded to the winner(s). More information on contest rules, considerations, instructions for entering, and prizes are available at AdamsVotes.com/contest.
After the entry deadline, there will be a short, public voting period. More details on this voting period will be available on the Clerk & Recorder’s Facebook and Twitter pages in early February.
- Entrants must keep their original artwork and/or design files.
- Submissions must be the correct shape/size (or able to scale down to the correct size)—a two-inch circle.

- Submissions must be non-partisan.

- Entrants and/or parents must be willing to allow us to use the artwork for upcoming elections.
