Election Day voters wear their stickers with pride, but they’re a relatively new part of voting in the United States. Florida-based National Campaign Supply claims to have designed the original “I Voted” sticker and first printed it in 1986, but each state or county decides the design of their sticker—or to have none at all. This morning Twitter and Instagram was flush with more lucky voters (and their kids!) who were happy to share their confirmation. But if you’re like me—denied a sticker by killjoy New Jersey election officials!—feel free to make your own.
