In lieu of its typical paper cover, New York Magazine has turned its upcoming opening page into something we can all get excited as we head the polls—stickers!
The publication tapped four dozen artists—Shepard Fairey, Barbara Kruger, KAWS, Laurie Simmons, David Hammons and Lorna Simpson to name just a few—to create their own versions of the “I Voted” label. A dozen stickers will appear on four different covers, what the magazine says will give voters a new adornment to wear each day all the way until Election Day.

New York Magazine created the stickers in partnership with civic engagement organization I Am a Voter. Along with the covers, 500,000 more stickers will be distributed through various outlets, including retailers like Crate and Barrel and CB2, bookstores and museums including L.A.’s Hammer Museum and New York’s Brooklyn Museum.
