Vote Local

As part of AIGA’s Design for Democracy initiative, we partnered with AIGA/NY, Community Votes, and United Neighborhood Houses to support and strengthen voter engagement in NYC. In advance of the 2018 local and federal primaries, we engaged in a participatory design process involving key representatives from historically disenfranchised NYC communities to understand local perceptions and frustrations around voting and politics. The outcome was a multilingual toolkit and campaign to drive voter engagement and registration across the five boroughs. Our work emphasized that communities that speak out, organize and vote get more political attention and are more likely to achieve positive change and prosperity.
