Design Contest Will Determine the New “I Voted” Sticker for Cape Girardeau County

The Cape Girardeau County Clerk’s Office announces the start of an “I Voted” Sticker Design Contest.  The contest is open to all Cape Girardeau County residents and the winning design will be used as the official “I Voted” sticker distributed at the polls during the 2020-2021 election years.  The deadline to submit a design is 5:00 p.m. on October 30, 2019.

This is the second “I Voted” Sticker Design Contest that has been held in Cape Girardeau County.  The first contest was held in 2017 when Jackson High School Senior Lydia Riehn’s design was chosen as the official “I Voted” sticker for 2018-2019 election years.

“We are excited to hold the sticker design contest again,” said County Clerk Kara Clark Summers.  “Our goal is to encourage county residents to participate civically by using their creative talents.”

After all designs have been submitted, finalists will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges.  Judging will be based on the artistic skill, theme, and uniqueness of the design.  The Cape Girardeau County Clerk’s Office will then hold an online public vote to allow residents of the County to have input on their favorite design.

“It will be interesting to see the submitted designs and have a new ‘I Voted’ sticker unique to our County,” added Kara Clark Summers.

Contestants must agree to the Official Rules of the contest and submit their designs by completing a Design Entry Form.  All submissions must be made electronically by 5:00 PM on October 30, 2019.  More information is available on the County Clerk’s website at
