COLUMBIA, SC – October 27, 2008 – AIGA SC will be meeting this Tuesday, October 28th at 6 p.m. at Liberty Taproom for an informal Poster Rally. The club will meet there to pick up AIGA “Get out the Vote” posters and hang them in the community to encourage residents to vote on November 4, 2008.
“Get Out the Vote,” an AIGA Design for Democracy initiative since the 2000 election, enables designers to engage in the public arena by contributing to a coordinated voter mobilization campaign. The 2008 poster campaign builds on the efforts made in 2004, when participants created more than 50,000 AIGA posters that were displayed in public places in communities across the nation and made available online for anyone to download, print and post independently.
By motivating eligible citizens to register and turn out on election day, “Get Out the Vote” fulfills an ongoing AIGA objective of demonstrating the value of design to the public, public officials and businesses by providing a clear call to action for an activity that is important to everyone.
