THE OFFICIAL UNOFFICIAL VOTING STATION

There are 91 million people in the United States and its territories who cannot legally vote. This includes: youth under 18, non-citizens, incarcerated, ex-felons, residents of US territories, and people without state IDs. This means that 1 in every 3 people cannot legally vote. 1 in 10 people 18 years old and over cannot legally vote. 

There are Official Unofficial Voting Stations taking place all over the US and in Mexico. All are welcome to vote, but we especially invite those who are discontented and the disenfranchised. 

Each station is different. They range from taking ballots into prisons to museum installations to performative events.
