Richmond residents are getting new "I Voted" stickers this year — and we get to help pick the design.

State of play: The Richmond Office of Elections is hosting an online contest to pick the winning sticker design from four finalists, all designed by VCU students.

Zoom in: The final four sticker designs and the artists' vision behind them, per VCU:

  • A cardinal wearing sunglasses, artist and DMV transplant Kansiny Nguyen's intentionally patriotic and colorful design.
  • An opossum filling out a ballot, a nod to "how opossums are basically Richmond's unofficial animal mascot," artist and Spotsylvania native Asia Rorick says.
  • An art deco-inspired skyline, an homage to the city's art scene, per Chesapeake native and artist Gabriel Thompson.
  • Or a colorful take on Richmond's architecturally interesting landmarks — to show the "colorful personality of the people," says artist and Herndon native Tre Venable.

What's next: You can vote once a day here. The winners will be announced next Friday and the stickers in-use in November.
