Denver Elections Division partners with artist Chloe Duplessis to create accessible "I VOTED " sticker
On September 21, the Denver Elections Division and local artist Chloé Duplessis unveiled the new “I Voted” sticker design to illustrate an ongoing commitment to providing voter-centric experiences for voters with vision or hearing disabilities within the City and County of Denver.
Designed specifically to enhance accessibility for voters who are visually impaired or blind, the sticker features braille and incorporates American Sign Language which promotes inclusivity of the broader community of those with disabilities.
“We strive to make all aspects of elections accessible for voters – even something as simple as displaying your civic pride with a sticker. Denverites love their stickers and having a design that’s more inclusive of voters with disabilities while showcasing the work of a talented local artist is a win-win,” Clerk and Recorder Paul López said.
Chloé Duplessis, a Denver-based artist who is legally blind, is known for creating art and immersive experiences that center accessibility and build community. She hopes that the sticker will elevate the importance of accessibility in the voting process and resonate with all voters. “People navigating disability often feel excluded or even ignored, but it's important to remember that everyone has value, and everyone deserves to be seen and heard,” said Duplessis.
