In the 2016 Presidential Election, Minnesota led the nation in percentage of voter participation.
In the 2018 midterm elections, one city is determined to lead the state.
When your city needs help.
When your city needs a champion.
This election when your city needs you the most.
Swim, a branding and advertising firm in Duluth, MN, is issuing a challenge to their fellow residents - lift our city to the highest percentage of voter turnout in the state.
We live and work in Duluth. Like you, we volunteer for the causes close to our heart. We debate. We participate. But we also know that, in the 2018 midterm elections, what our city needs most is our vote. We’re happy to give it, and we’re challenging the rest of our city to do the same.
You mean besides the pride that comes from taking part in our democracy and ensuring your voice is heard on the issues that matter most to your community? Besides that? How about helping your city claim the crown as the voting-est place in the voting-est state?
