Deadline for Tompkins County “I Voted” Competition is May 1st


The deadline for the 2024 Tompkins County “I Voted” sticker contest is Wednesday, May 1st. The contest returns for a second year after a successful first year. The contest is open for students in grades 6 to 12 within Tompkins County. This year though, the contest will also have a new “Future Voter” sticker contest for students in grades K-5 in the county.

The Tompkins County Board of Elections says the contest is to increase civic engagement and participation by young people within Tompkins County. The winning “I Voted” sticker will be given out during this year’s general election in November to all voters. All submissions will be accepted through May 1st the Board of Elections says.

To participate in the “I Voted” contest, the submitted work must say “I Voted” somewhere visible and also must fit in a 2 inch by 2 inch circle. All submissions must be original artwork and may be hand drawn or done digitally via a computer.

Staff at the Board of Elections will choose 6 finalists in each contest which will then be open to vote by the community. The sticker that receives the most votes will then be the winner and printed.

For the “Future Voter” submission, work must be submitted from the template. The template may be found HERE.
