Though elections are held every year in the United States, a presidential election, which only comes around every four years, is a whole different ball game. The stakes are higher, the turnout is bigger, and all eyes turn to local municipalities who bear the responsibility of helping citizens in their area to cast their vote for who will make up their next government.
2020 is a presidential election year, and though the calendar has seemingly just turned back to January, before we know it, November will be just around the corner. That’s why it is so important that all who are involved in making the electoral process run smoothly throughout our country begin planning now to make sure everything goes off without a hitch.
And while half the battle is getting voters to show up at the polls, the other half is making sure they know exactly what they’re doing when they get there. Here’s how our custom banners can help make the upcoming election day a real winner:
Custom Banners to Identify Which Precinct Votes Where
When most of us show up to vote on election day, chances are it is at an elementary school, government building, church, or other public space. And because many different voting precincts can end up sharing the same space, the need to properly identify which precinct votes where is incredibly important. Many of our municipal clients have found that using custom banners can provide the perfect solution to this common problem.
Whether you want to hang the custom banner above an entrance to identify where voters of a certain precinct should enter, or use it to adorn the wall behind a registration table, banners make it easy to quickly communicate to voters which precincts vote where – reducing confusion at the polls and speeding up what can easily become a slow process. Plus, because precincts rarely change and our banners are durable and long-lasting, they can easily be used year after year, election after election, to great efficacy.
Custom Banners to Let Voters Know Where to Vote
Election day can be hectic, and for many long-time and first-time voters, a change of their voting location can throw a hitch into their plans. That’s why cities, especially after a location change, need to do their best to show voters exactly where they need to go to vote. For many cities and counties, custom banners help achieve this goal in an effective and cost-friendly way.
Both our 8oz mesh banners that are great for high-wind areas and our 18oz heavy duty banners which are designed specifically for large banners intended to be used outdoors are great options for letting your voters know exactly where to vote. When hung on the side of a building or suspended from stakes in a lawn, a big, eye-catching custom banner that says “Vote Here Today” or “Polling Place” will leave no doubt as to your voters destination – and will help you maximize turnout each and every election day.
Custom Banners for Voter Registration
Though making voting as easy as possible is the ultimate goal for any city or government that helps to organize an election, equally important is making sure all who are eligible and interested in registering to vote are able to – and, again, banners can play a huge helpful role.
Whether you’re manning a table at a local community gathering months before the election or running a same-day voter registration effort at a local polling place, making sure your audience knows exactly who you are and how you can help them is truly paramount to your success. A beautiful high-quality banner will go a long way to helping you achieve your goal.
Though these are three great ways custom banners can be used to help make your community’s election day a success, there is truly no end to the potential these affordable yet universally adaptable pieces have.
