The Sanford Museum has just opened its new exhibit in the West Gallery, entitled "Vote!" The exhibit opened on Nov. 1, and will be up until Nov. 23.

Each year, campaigns seem to go a little longer and the ads seem to be a little more cutting. The "Vote!" exhibit takes a look at past elections, the buttons, the posters and the TV ads. Come and enjoy the campaign paraphernalia collected by Evan Knapp over the years and recently donated to the Sanford Museum.

The exhibit also includes a film of presidential TV ads beginning with 1952. The flags included in the exhibit are from the Museum's collection.
