The election is being held today and those who vote in-person are rewarded with an “I Voted Today” sticker. The sticker is ubiquitous, but have you ever thought about it? What is the connection between REALTORS® and voting? We wanted to uncover the history of the “I Voted Today” sticker and here’s what we found.
The Phoenix Association of REALTORS® provided an article via our Facebook Page: “In 1985, The Phoenix Board of REALTORS® developed the now famous I Voted Today sticker.” The article goes on to state that over 20 million stickers were donated to Maricopa County and City of Phoenix Election departments.
Diane Scherer says via Facebook, “The Phoenix Association has proudly provided these stickers for all elections since 1985. Showing REALTOR involvement in their community and encouraging all citizens to vote.”
