The 'I Voted' sticker for Clark County Nevada are a social media hit, and a partisan reminder the Strip is in county jurisdiction. The top is flanked by palm trees, and in the center is Vegas Liberty from New York-New York Hotel and Casino under a burst of fireworks. Other landmarks making the cut is the Excalibur, the Linq High Roller, the Stratosphere (which is in the city of Las Vegas), Paris hotel-casino, the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, and the Luxor. The shape of the sticker is a subtle nod to the shape of the Las Vegas sign.
In trying to get a lead on who the artist may be, a few inquiries to Clark County yielded a "Credit Clark County." If it was an in-house job, and we find out who the graphic designer is, PtD will pass on the information.

From NPR: "The cemetery where women's suffrage activist Susan B. Anthony is buried extended its hours Tuesday "to accommodate those wishing to celebrate their vote" at her gravesite.
Mount Hope Cemetery in Rochester, N.Y., will be open until polls there close at 9 p.m. ET.
Although this presidential election is the first in American history to have a woman on the ballot as a major party candidate, it is not the first time people have commemorated their votes by visiting Anthony's grave. "
