And also, graphic designers in general.
In case you’ve registered to vote on paper in the last couple years, you’ve probably asked yourself, “self, why are these registration forms so hard to read???” And you’d be right, because up until the beginning of this year, the registration forms have been confusingly laid-out, hard to follow, and easy to do incorrectly.
And yes, you read that last sentence correctly – things have changed! Specifically, the forms have been redesigned and are now beautiful, easy to use, and, frankly, quite crushable. How did this come about? Well, Secretary of State Sam Reed’s office has been leading the charge on better access to registration (see: online voter registration), and this fits squarely in that wheelhouse.
The re-do was orchestrated by Jenny Grieves, a Design for Democracy Fellow at the Secretary of State’s office. We think she did a great job. You concur?
