Don't worry; we'll have more stickers available at voting locations for the November 3 election.

Announcing Nashville's 2020 special-edition voter sticker!
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing U.S. women the right to vote, Metro Arts and the Davidson County Election Commission sponsored a sticker design contest for Davidson County students in grades 7-12. The contest received 75 entries, which a citizen selection panel narrowed down to 8 finalists. More than 2,300 Nashvillians voted for their favorite sticker.
The winning design, by Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet High School senior Milka Negasi, was printed on stickers for distribution at every early voting location and election day precinct in Davidson County for the August and November 2020 elections.
We've rounded up some sources to provide a little inspiration and education around women's suffrage, voting rights, and Tennessee's role in voter history.
