Custom banners and signs can also be utilized to tell the voters of the different voting options like in person voting, absentee ballots, mail in ballots etc. These customized posters can be put up in libraries , government offices and other public places to ensure a higher turnout on the poll day and inform people of the various options available to them.
Outdoor and Indoor signage
