The vote was close and both logos had fans. Laura Cotton who voted for the winner said, “The purple is great from a symbolic perspective, but the other is really a better design. It will also be cheaper to print only 2 colors.”
“Both are good designs, but Option A seems more direct, clean and simple to recreate,” commented Jan Underwood.
Mary Ann Barnes describes her reason for supporting the winning logo, “While option B cleverly colors us as a purple state, I prefer the greater simplicity and use of one less color tone in option A. Option A would be easier to use for printed materials, with or without color.”
Katie Valeska Wright who created the logos is excited to work with the Fair Districts = Fair Elections campaign and said, “Redistricting reform is my number one cause because without fair and competitive elections, we don't have much of a democracy. It's a bipartisan issue—when an official is in a 'safe' (gerrymandered) seat, they don't have to work to earn your vote. Even if it's your party's candidate who's 'safe,' they have little incentive to listen to your concerns and truly represent you, the voter. Fair elections for all!
“Volunteering has been so rewarding; I get to use my strengths to help make a difference. No matter what you're skilled at, there are organizations that need what you've got to offer. Find your niche and get out there for your favorite cause!”
Drum Roll, please. The winner is: Option A!
