The Board of Elections is currently accepting sticker designs. Contestants must have written consent from their parent, guardian or custodian. Each contestant will be allowed to submit one sticker design.
Sticker designs must be a 4-inch circle format capable of being reduced to a 2-inch format. The design must incorporate Cumberland County symbols, landmarks and voting themes. Submissions must be in JPEG, PNG or PDF formats.

The “I Voted” sticker contest will consist of three rounds of voting to choose a winning design. In the first round, all approved sticker designs will be displayed on the Cumberland County Board of Elections website for 30 days. Members of the public will vote for 10 sticker designs to advance to round two.
In round two, members of the public will again be able to vote for sticker designs. The top three designs selected during round two will advance to the final round. The Cumberland County Board of Elections members and the Elections director will vote for one winning “I Voted” sticker design from the three finalists. The sticker voted by a majority of the Board of Elections members will be declared the contest winner.
The “I Voted” sticker contest is nonpartisan. Submissions with any reference or suggestion to party affiliation or political issues that may have appeared on a ballot will not be accepted.
