Make Democracy Hot Again; A Round-Up of the Hottest VOTE Merch On the Internet
I don’t know if you heard, but voting is in. In a generation when activism is practically a rite of passage, what could be cooler than leaving your mark on the world? Because that’s what voting fundamentally is: making your voice heard. In 2016, the election’s margins were so thin that the outcome was virtually decided by less than 80,000 people in three states. That means one thing: Every. Vote. Matters.
And while you may not be able to control what other people do, you can 100% encourage others to take themselves to the polls by publicly repping your love of voting.
If you’re passionate about democracy, what better way to show the world your love than through your clothes and accessories? You wouldn’t be the only one! Celebrities and change-makers are increasingly sporting vote-merch to get the word out there: voting looks good.
Take a look at our roundup of the hottest vote merch below!
