Voting for the Best Design in Lassen County ‘I Voted’ Sticker Contest Set to Begin


Entries for the Lassen County Election Department’s first annual ‘I Voted’ sticker design contest closed on June 30th. The department says over 100 were received from Lassen County Middle and High school students between the ages of 11 and 18.

The contest now moves into the voting stage, with the community able to provide their picks for their favorite sticker design. Throughout this week, the Elections Department will be showcasing the top 5 finalists from each division on their social media pages. Starting Monday, July 8th, you can vote for your favorite design through July 22. If you don’t have a social page, you can also vote in person at the Lassen County Fair from July 17th to 21st.

The contest was spurred by a lack of voter involvement, especially among young voters. Following the March 5th Primary, the Deputy Clerk-Recorder noted voter turnout was “not great” in a report to the board of supervisors, highlighting that less than half of the county’s registered voters came out to cast their ballots.  Partnering with the Lassen County Probation Department, this contest aims to showcase the artistic talents of students while promoting voter turnout for the upcoming elections.

The top TWO submissions will become the new ‘I Voted’ Stickers for Lassen County, and the artists will receive an Amazon gift card sponsored by the Lassen County Probation Department.
