Don’t Vote Poster

This poster was produced in 1964 by the New York Committe, Anti-Vote Campaign. The Anti-Vote Campaign was an apolitical group made up of individuals, anarchists, radicals, and libertarians. The message is simple, but poignant: “direct action not politics!” Clearly, the intent of the declaration is to call on individuals to seek out “direct actionist” alternatives to voting in the 1964 elections. The anti-vote movement believed that the political rights and liberties which people enjoy today are the result of individuals’ strengths and actions — not of their governments, independent candidates, or party platforms.
