Presented with Archtober
How can design address the perceived problems of the voting poll experience in urban communities, from long lines at obscure locations to bungled technology and counting conundrums? This fast-paced, one-day design competition invited interdisciplinary teams to consider how the voting poll experience in cities could be re-imagined to be more equitable, accessible, and engaging for all citizens.
Following a closed-door workshop among finalist teams, attendees joined us for a presentation of team proposals and voted for their favorite. A jury of design and election experts judged the entries and announced a winner at the conclusion of the event.
Jury: Rebecca Amato, associate director, Urban Democracy Lab, NYU; Caron Atlas, executive director, Arts & Democracy; Wellington Chen, executive director, Chinatown Partnership; Gonzalo Cruz, principal, AECOM; David van der Leer, executive director, Van Alen Institute; Zak Klauck, director, WAX Studios
