The Ohio Secretary of State, Ohio’s chief election official, has partnered with Ohio craft breweries, distilleries, and wineries to increase voter registration and participation in Ohio. Two years ago, patriotic breweries from all over Ohio created an “Every Vote Counts” beer, designed to spread the word and encourage Ohio voters to have their voice heard. This year distilleries and wineries are helping out by putting an “Every Vote Counts” label on bottles sold in house and in retail stores throughout Ohio.

The label reads “Register to vote: VoteOhio.gov” to remind patrons and their friends on social media to register to vote by October 11th, 2022. The label is open source and will be used by each of the partnering businesses.

Special beers and labeled bottles from distilleries and wineries will be available at tap houses across the state in August and September. Please support your local breweries, distilleries, and wineries as they work to help register Ohio voters and make sure every vote counts!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO BREW, BRAND AND PROMOTE THE BEER

Beer label artwork is available for anyone to use. There are two template sizes, 7.5” x 3.625 (12oz) and 7.5”x5” (16oz). We are asking participating breweries to use one of these templates, with a portion of the label being open for your own art -- illustration, pattern, photography, logo, or anything else.

Distilleries and wineries can request labels for their bottled products.
