For Election Day, we’re introducing two new ways for people in the US to share their voting excitement on Instagram: an “I Voted” sticker and a “We Voted!” story at the front of your stories bar. We’ve seen our community use Instagram to share that they voted with friends and family — and we’re thrilled to make this even easier and more expressive.
Starting Sunday, you’ll be able to use a new “I Voted” sticker. Open the camera, take a proud selfie, tap the sticker icon and select the “I Voted” sticker from the tray. If your phone language is set to Spanish, you’ll see the “Yo Voté” version. After you use the “I Voted” sticker, your friends can tap the sticker in your story to find their polling location via Get to the Polls, a nonpartisan site.
On Election Day on November 6th, you will see a “We Voted!” story at the front of your stories bar when several of your friends post a story with the “I Voted” sticker. Simply tap the “We Voted!” story to see your friends’ voting excitement all in one place. This functionality is new to Instagram, and provides a way for you to see the people you follow share a moment together in Stories. We’re excited to bring this feature to the community in new ways in the future.
Both the “I Voted” sticker and “We Voted!” story will be available throughout Election Day in the US.
