Madison GOP hosting ‘I Voted’ contest


The Madison County Republican Party is calling fifth, sixth, and seventh graders to participate in their first “I VOTED” Sticker Contest. 

Renee Lambert, chairman of the Madison County GOP, a retired special education teacher, wants to come up with fun ways to get Madison County youth involved in events and projects. 

“We have not had a contest like this before,” Lambert said. “I was looking around for things to do and I saw a place in Texas had done this type of contest and I wanted to implement something like that here. Especially since 2023 is such an important election year for our state.”

The “I VOTED” Sticker Contest begins on Monday, March 6, and ends on Thursday, April 6. It is open to all fifth, sixth, and seventh graders in Madison County, including homeschoolers. 

“If this goes well, we plan on making this an event for each election cycle,” Lambert said. 

All of the mayors in Madison County, along with State Sen. Walter Michel, will judge the stickers and select the winners. First place wins $100 in cash and will have their sticker passed out to voters during the Aug. 8 primary. Second place wins $50 in cash, and third place wins $25. All of the winners will be recognized at a reception in April. 

Lambert said the Madison County GOP is very active throughout the county and has been for decades. 

“We do everything we can to further the party and we want it to be strong and united in Madison County,” Lambert said. “Our objective is to build a strong coalition and send good candidates to our state level.”
