In partnership with I am a voter, New York Magazine asked 48 artists, including Professor Devan Shimoyama, to create “I Voted” stickers for the cover of the October 26 issue. The issue, whose cover has been transformed into a sticker sheet, has four different versions. Other contributing artists include: Shepard Fairey, KAWS, Barbara Kruger, David Hammons, Laurie Simmons, Amy Sherald, Baron Von Fancy, Marilyn Minter, Lorna Simpson, Tawny Chatmon, Rico Gatson, Zipeng Zhu, Adam Pendleton, Adam J. Kurtz, and Zaria Forman.

In addition to the magazine covers, 500,000 more stickers will be distributed for free at bookstores and museums across the country, and retail stores including Crate and Barrel and CB2 (both November 3 only), who, along with Warby Parker and EHE Health, are supporting the project’s printing cost. The sheets will also be distributed by nonprofit organizations including the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition and the Campus Vote Project, as well as official polling sites such as the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and the Brooklyn Museum in New York.
