US Creative Works: the midterm elections edition

Sierra Club's 'Why Do You Vote?' campaign

The US midterm elections are upon us, which means every registered voter should be at the polls sometime today (November 6). Most voters are, by now, fed up with the onslaught of political attack ads, most of which are truly awful. But there are some ads that powered through the clutter to make an impact on the electorate.

Some were designed to get people to actually engage in their civic duties and get to the polls, as most midterm elections have sadly low voter turnouts, while others tackled the issues and had something to say.

Look over the collection of campaigns below and do your duty by voting on the ones you think made the best impact.

Happy voting, USA! Wear your 'I Voted' sticker with pride.
