    The E Day mark is a nice idea, but FYI: George Washington wasn't "elected" by the people to be president like Reagan and Obama. Inspiring otherwise...

      love the E day design!

    I was very heartened to see this.

    @ellenrosenthal - that's why we should make Election Day a national holiday, so people don't have to work that day and can vote comfortably! :)

    The real problem is that voting on a weekday is a very bad idea! We should vote on Saturday or Sunday and all of these design ideas and suggestions for getting people to vote on a weekday would no longer be necessary. Why make it so inconvenient to begin with?

    As a former student of the School of Visual Arts, I find the sample of the student work in this article a poor example of effective communication. What would have been a better symbol of communication a rectangle with four check boxes in a row, with the third check box checked, centered over the words "VOTE GOOD GOV'T."
    □ □ √ □
    VOTE
    GOOD
    GOV'T

    Such a graphic represents making a choice.

    I think this is GOOD. Now let's also figure out a way to imbue all voters with an appropriate level of curiosity so that each of us takes the time to learn about & research each candidate, then voting accordingly based on that candidate's vision & practical ideas -- not on their charisma, charm, connections, or darned good looks.
