Best Vote Merch for the 2020 Election: T-Shirts, Jewelry, Pins & More
Arguably the most important election of our generation so far is upon us. As we continue to grapple with the global coronavirus pandemic and systemic racial injustice, among many other issues, Nov. 3 is a crucial date for us to fulfill our civic duty of voting.
A few weeks ago at the Democratic National Convention, Michelle Obama gave her speech with a gold chain necklace that read, V-O-T-E in letter charms. Earlier this week, Dr. Jill Biden, after voting in the Delaware primary at the state capitol building, stepped out in a pair of fall boots with VOTE on them. These are just a few examples of voluminous voting merchandise available to shop and proudly wear prior to the 2020 election.
If you want to show your pride as a voter, spread awareness and encourage family, friends and your community to vote this year, consider this option: wearing statement-making vote clothing and accessories. Some of our favorite brands have teamed up with voting outreach organizations like When We All Vote, Rock the Vote, Headcount.org and I Am a Voter on special pieces.
