As 2016 marks an election year, #MiGenteVota aims to engage nuestra gente in the electoral process, either by inciting dialogue or by encouraging folks to take the next step to vote.
At these public art interventions you can register to vote, learn about local ballot measures, and get your own MiGenteVota screen-print or digital print for free!
