106 million people living in the United States and its territories cannot legally vote. Youth under 18 years old, non-citizens, incarcerated, ex-felons, residents of U.S. territories and people without proper IDs are amongst the groups of people who are disenfranchised. During the 2016 elections The Official Unofficial Voting Station: Voting for All Who Legally Can’t created spaces where all, especially the discontented and the disenfranchised were invited to cast unsanctioned ballots.
Official Unofficial Voting Station: Voting for All Who Legal Can’t is on view at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum through April 30th. Since election day the voting station has been transformed into a suggestion station for the Chicago Mayor and the U.S. President. Come share your voice on Friday and Sunday during Open Engagement.
