RHETORIC 3 :: the vote poster

Here's a cursory look at historic and contemporary vote posters in the US and abroad.

Nichelle Narcisi's concept "Except You" was the winner at last year's Command X competition (at AIGA's Next Conference in Denver). Aimed at getting the 18-24-year-old vote out in 2008 her concept
"was an absolute triumph--literally bringing much of the audience (and two judges) to tears. She got a standing-O after she presented it, and another after being crowned the winner." (via Core 77)

Kitsch Ron Paul campaign poster.

This isn't a vote poster, but it's politically motivated.
