Ulster County, NY is holding a design contest for the I Voted stickers to be handed out this fall among high school students

The vote is open to anyone and there is an obvious correct choice

A few hundred people, probably actually from Ulster County, New York: We will take this internet poll seriously

The rest of the Internet: lol lmao

@LilyVers It's just BLOWING everything else entirely out of the water, it's not even a contest

@witchfynder_finder "let's see, building, eagle, american flag, ugh-- ohoho what's THIS???"

@LilyVers You almost feel bad for a couple of them because there's some genuinely good graphic design in there

But you just can't compete with THAT

@witchfynder_finder I wonder if the county will be brave enough to use the spider design.

Or if they'll do a Boaty McBoatface and declare that the contest was only a suggestion.

@apLundell Honestly with this many votes I think they HAVE to use it, with the political landscape the way it is, we have to be able to rely on SOME form of democratic process =P

@witchfynder_finder like. that kid probably submitted that as a joke or dare and he's gonna win the whole thing, even if they refuse to let it actually be the sticker for some bullshit reason and i cannot wait to find out what happens

@witchfynder_finder SAME. like. god can you imagine going to vote and coming away with that masterpiece

@witchfynder_finder I like how they tried to bury it in the last spot and did a total Streisand Effect on it.
