Today is election day ya’ll and you all better get out and VOTE! It’s important to exercise this privilege, don’t let it go to waste or take it for granted.

To celebrate this joyous occasion here are some BEAUTIFULLY designed posters from the AIGA “Get Out and Vote” competition. The AIGA “invited members to create nonpartisan posters and videos that inspire the American public to participate in the electoral process and vote in the 2012 general election.”

You can check out the full gallery here. Bold typography, quirky illustrations and poignant “call to actions” fill the gallery and convey the importance of voting to get your voice heard.
