Election officials hold art contest to celebrate voting

The Pitt County, North Carolina Board of Elections is hosting an art contest in an effort to engage children and the general public in the election process. Children ages 8-14 have the opportunity to design “I Voted” stickers while anyone age 15 and up can submit “My Vote” visual art designs. The Board of Elections will select two winning “I Voted” designs which will be used on stickers and distributed on election day. Etsil S. Mason, chairwoman of the Pitt County Board of Elections, says she believes the contest is, “a wonderful opportunity to connect with the kids in the community to give them a head start in understanding what voting really is.”
