#GetOutTheVote: Fun Brands Promoting Your Right to Vote
It's election season!
Welcome to Election Season
November 3rd is quickly approaching and it’s crucial that everyone who is 18 and older exercises their right to vote. If you aren’t registered, it’s easy.
Need a few reminders or just want to remind your friends or family? These companies are finding fun and stylish ways to help get out the vote.
If you are going to vote in person, do it safely and maybe even wear a special mask for the occasion. Tokki x Gravitas created these masks with NYC designers in both adult and kid sizes, celebrating 100 years of women’s right to vote. There are three in the collection, two of which feature prominent women leaders on the last century. Ten percent of the proceeds will support the National Black Women’s Justice Institute.
