A Sign of the Times: Raising Awareness of Public Transit before Election Day

Most campaign signs are for candidates. You can stand out in your neighborhood — or at work — by posting an election window sign on an issue that impacts all of us: public transportation.

Download and Print the Voices for Public Transit Window Sign

Your sign will raise awareness about local public transportation measures and remind voters to look down their ballots and vote to support public transit. In addition, your sign will help connect voters with Voices for Public Transit!

Window Signs Aren’t Just for Windows Anymore

We recognize that not everyone has a good, visible window for a hanging a campaign sign. Or maybe hanging signs is against your building’s rules. Here are some other ideas for using the window sign:

  • Post a window sign on your cubicle or office door.
  • Make a yard sign using the window sign, a piece of cardboard, and a wire hanger — just make sure you only display your sign on your property.
  • Distribute window signs to local businesses for their windows.
  • Hand out signs for your friends and family use to build awareness in their communities.

Not a window sign person? No worries. Voices for Public Transit’s Election Toolkit 2016 also includes a flyer that you can share with friends, neighbors, co-workers, and others, as well as social media shareable graphics that you can post on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.

Please use one or all of these materials to encourage others to support public transportation when they vote on November 8.
