Your Vote is Your Voice was invited by County Clerk, Gail Pellerin, to reprise  the 2019 exhibit at the County of Santa Cruz Government Center during their most important 2020 election season. This exhibit aims to inform, inspire and develop greater interest in the non-partisan democratic process.

The exhibit includes contemporary regional artists’ interpretation of voting rights and informative displays from Santa Cruz County Elections Department. A visual timeline highlights key events in voting rights history. The exhibit is presented in partnership with the Santa Cruz County Clerk/Elections Department, Santa Cruz County Arts Commission, and Santa Cruz County General Services.
