Creative and Original “I Voted” Sticker Design 

'I Voted' Sticker Contest 

In August 2018, the Durham County Board of Elections collaborated with Durham County and the City of Durham's Neighborhood Improvement Services to create an 'I Voted' sticker competition to engage voters beyond casting a ballot. The first winning sticker was utilized for two years until a second sticker contest was held in the summer of 2020. The recent winning sticker depicts a bull surrounded by stars and the colors of the Durham flag. Durham is known as the Bull City because of its history with tobacco companies and a product from the late 1800s called “Bull Durham Tobacco.”  

Since this sticker design encapsulates so much of what Durham represents, it was the clear winner out of the final stickers. The artists of the top three sticker submissions received monetary prizes. In addition to a monetary prize, the winner received a custom plaque that is presented by the Durham County Board of Commissioners at an official meeting (Delayed due to COVID-19).
