This time it's Equality Ohio. Come on guys (and gals)... you can be more creative than this! Especially with all the LGBT creatives out there. The outline of Ohio is NOT a heart and making it red won't make it that way. Look at some of the stuff that HRC is doing: shop.hrc.org/clothing/tees.html

So I voted this morning, expecting to see the godforsaken sticker I blogged about. But low and behold, a different sticker was offered. Relieved, I did accept the offer and proudly displayed the sticker on my lapel. Although it's red, I didn't vote that way. And thank god the Secretary of State didn't use it to blatantly display his name -- just his title...

So, Ohio Secretary of State, Jon Husted announced that a winner had been selected for a re-design of the "I voted today" stickers that voters receive after casting their ballot at Ohio polls on election day. The winning sticker received 38 percent of the vote, beating out five other designs. The second-place sticker received 37 percent of the vote — only 352 fewer votes than the winner. The election began in May and 59,272 votes were cast.
Obviously, not many designers were involved in the polling or the process, because, although they try to capitalize on the famous "I (heart) NY" graphic, the sticker actually reads "I (ohio) voting"... Huh? To make these more effective, all they would have needed to do was put a reversed-out heart into the silhouette of the state and it would have been more easily read. Who made this decision? I think it was the same politico who sat around giggling that these stickers would have ALL voters running around with a "red" ohio pinned to their chests.
