NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nashville residents can now vote for which sticker design they will when voting in the August general election and November presidential election this year.

The Metro Nashville Arts Commission and Davidson County Election Commission created the "I Voted" student sticker contest to commemorate the Women's Suffrage movement and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

"The fantastic designs we received from talented student artists all over Nashville represented a wide range of schools, ages and ideas," said Metro Arts Executive Director Caroline Vincent. "Now Nashvillians face the fun but tough task of choosing a favorite. This collaboration with the Election Commission is a true reflection of how art can bolster civic participation, and we look forward to finding out the winner and making these stickers for all of Nashville."

Metro Arts received 75 entries from students in grades seven through 12. Entries were then narrowed down to eight finalist from Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet High School, Martin Luther King, Jr. Academic Magnet School, Rose Park Magnet Middle School and Harpeth Hall School

"We appreciate all the students who participated in the 'I Voted' sticker contest," said Jeff Roberts, Davidson County administrator of elections. "They are to be commended for getting involved in our upcoming elections and for using their talents to commemorate the centennial of women’s suffrage. We encourage Nashvillians to vote for their favorite design and look forward to distributing the commemorative sticker in August and November."

Starting Monday, Davidson County residents can pick the winner. All residents may cast one vote per person to choose which sticker will be available at all Davidson County voting precincts this year.
