Georgia license plate design up for voting again
on Monday,July 18,2011 22:07
Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia was set to reveal the contest winner of the state-wide license plate design competition this past Friday. However, due to the backlash of the statement "In God We Trust" on the bottom of the plates, the Governor decided to reopen the voting, according to the Dallas-Hiram Patch.
Due to the public outcry, the voting has reopened for the next three weeks with the original eight plates in which residents are able to choose from. Now, people can opt to have "In God We Trust" on any of the plates, or they can leave it out entirely, according to the media outlet.
"We're reopening the voting for three weeks so that everyone knows what they are voting on," wrote Deal spokesman Brian Robinson in an emailed response to the news source. "There will be no stickers on the tags when voting reopens on Monday."
Individuals who are interested in graphic design may have the opportunity of landing a job in this field when they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for professionals in this field is expected to increase by 13 percent between 2008 and 2018.
