2022 Midterm VOTE Posters & Billboards
UPDATE 10/17: Thanks to your generous donations, we've reached our goal and our deadline to fund the production of billboards! Any remaining funds received will be used for last-minute print runs of posters and postcards to voters.
To date, we printed 30,000 of our 2022 midterm VOTE posters and shipped them for free circulation to over 100 volunteer distributors in 25 states! In just the past few days, we raised additional funds for 9-10 Reproductive Freedom billboards going up in swing states as a collaboration with artist Michele Pred and Save Art Space.
Thank you for supporting our effort to boost voter engagement for the critical issues of our time. So much is at stake in this election. We are grateful and uplifted that we can make an impact with our work!
Please contact us if you'd like to learn more about the project or how you can bolster our efforts. We plan to come back in 2024 with a bang.

Our 2022 VOTE poster fundraiser is on, brought to you by artist Lena Wolff in collaboration with Hope Meng! With generous contributions from over 200 donors, we raised funds to print 32,000 posters this summer to boost voter participation in the midterms. In mid-August, they shipped to over 85 volunteers in 25 states, with a particular focus on the critical states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania & Texas.
To get the posters out into the world, we need to raise a bit more for shipping after learning in July that our printing quote increased by 20% and we received requests for more VOTE for Reproductive Freedom posters.
The VOTE posters are designed, printed and given away as a public art and community engagement project. Donations large and small make this collective effort possible!
How the Project Works:
After fundraising, we send posters to volunteers in critical states who distribute them for free in libraries, shops, community centers, and to GOTV organizations. The posters are non-partisan and urge citizens to vote for meaningful reasons related to social and environmental justice. Because we don't name candidates or a party on our posters, they are easy to place in public and commercial spaces. The posters end up in windows across the country! Free downloadable images are made available for independent printing and to share on social media. In 2020, we received hundreds of images of the posters in use! (See past project images here: https://www.yourvotecampaign.com/about)
This year, the six variations our posters read:
VOTE ! for Reproductive Freedom
VOTE ! for Trans Rights
VOTE! for Gun Reform
VOTE ! for the Planet
VOTE ! for Democracy
Tu VOTO Es Tu Voz
Your VOTE Matters
How the Funds are Used:
Funds raised go directly to printing and shipping costs. As of early August 2022, 30,000 posters are in production at the union print shop Community Printers in the Bay Area!
We are still raising money for the estimated shipping costs to over 80 volunteers in swing states across the United States!
If we raise more than our initial goal, we'll use any extra funds to pay for billboards to go up in critical cities in late summer / early fall.
Our posters are never sold and always given away for free! While we can't send single posters to donors, we send posters in bulk shipments of 100 to 500 at a time to people who sign up to become volunteer distributors in their communities. If you would like to be a poster distributor this year, please contact us.
As with past years, Bay Area residents will be able to pick up free posters on Lena's porch. Outside of the Bay Area, we will prioritize shipping to the critical swing states of Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Texas this year. But we're also looking for distributors in other states, so please contact us if you live elsewhere.
Thank you for participating! Democracy is a collective effort and we couldn't do this without you!
