The contest is on! Artistic students are invited to create a small piece of art that encourages people to vote. Winning artwork will be used in our outreach efforts and seen on posters, our website and social media. They'll also be featured on a million McDonald's bag stuffers, thanks to a partnership with Caspers Company McDonald's. And if playing an important role in our democracy weren't enough, Caspers Company is also donating $100 to the first place artist and $100 to his or her art class. Contest details can be found here.

The concept is simple, and powerful. Nonprofits recruit volunteers to be poll workers, and those volunteers donate their Election Day earnings to the nonprofit. Everybody wins with this program. We get terrific poll workers, nonprofits earn much-needed funds, and our community benefits from the work the nonprofits are doing.
These middle school civics students had some GREAT questions for our Supervisor of Elections.
Q: Why does Hillsborough County publish voting material in English and Spanish?
A: Hillsborough County is a "covered jurisdiction" under the Language Minority Groups provision of the Voting Rights Act, so we are required by law to publish voting material in both English and Spanish.
