Rocking California’s “I Voted” Sticker in CSS for Election Day 2018

Oh hey, so tomorrow (tomorrow!) is Election Day here in the United States. We're not in the business of making political endorsements or anything like that at CSS-Tricks, though we do endorse that everyone exercise their right to vote.

I did exactly that two years ago and posted a CSS rendition of the "I Voted" sticker that came with my California mail-in ballot.

Fast forward to today, and I received a new sticker in the ballot sporting a fresh design.

I have a little time, so I'm going to try to re-create this sticker in CSS and walk through my thought process as I do it. Feel free to follow along if you'd like!

Get Out the Vote, CSS Style!

The United States general election is tomorrow! New leaders — including a new president — will be elected to office on November 8 after citizens make their voices heard by casting votes for candidates.

Where does CSS-Tricks fit into the election? This is far from being a place to discuss politics, though we do admit to the occasional dive into office politics such as helping teams have productive discussions about code and how we define our roles in the workplace.
