VOTEHERE

is an election year project of Ukranian/Russian/American artist Irina Danilova.
Upon becoming an American citizen, she decided to share her vote with all those
who don't have the right to vote.

Non-USA-citizens, under 18, mentally incompetent, or currently in prison may
send a vote to votehere2012@gmail.com or vote online

On November 8, 2016 Irina Danilova will vote for the candidate who garners the most.
National and International votes will be submitted separately only if they split.

Up to 30% of the US population is not allowed to vote: mid-teens, prisoners, illegal
immigrants and permanent residents. All depend on US politics, as does the rest of
the world. While giving an opportunity to everyone to express a view on the US
Presidential Election, VOTEHERE is gathering a collective alternative opinion.
It is also a metaphor for the power of the individual vote.
