This year’s election will feature multi-language “I Voted” stickers that commemorate the struggle for women’s suffrage and celebrate diversity, Alaska Division of Elections announced.

The unique stickers were designed by Anchorage-based artist Barbara Lavallee and feature a stylized depiction of the diversity, strength and power of Alaskan women, the division said in a news release. The stickers are a follow-up to a 2018 sticker project that featured artwork from Juneau artist Pat Race.
