you need to take much better photos. i can barely make out what's going on here.

also, i'm having trouble identifying exactly what rhetorical devices you're using in these ideas. you'll be responsible for describing those and explaining your choices in final crit.

"vote now" teeth
maybe a bit cheesy, but it could work. it's definitely culturally specific.

on some of these others, i have no idea how they appeal specifically to an african-american audience. what is it in these that appeals to that demographic?

spread the vote/spray can
this could be interesting if you can pull off a believable and nice looking tag. the phrase needs work though. brainstorm other phrases that could complement this idea. also, taggers use very specific brands of paint, so you'd want to be careful in your choice of can graphics. one that says "tag" could be seen as cheesy.

is that a talking ballot? i'm not convinced your audience will take this seriously.

the "vote rings" is a pretty interesting idea. it references/parodies their culture, is powerful because of the fist, and makes an empowering statement. i'd pursue this for sure.

some of the other images i can't see what's going on because of the photo quality, so i can't really comment on them unfortunately.
