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.
