Several people (myself included) have noticed the “Vote Twice” buttons at The Gap displays.
My friend Allyson noticed, too, and decided to write The Gap. Here’s her letter:
To the Board of Directors of Gap, and Officers of the Company,
I have been a loyal customer of GAP since it first opened. I have seen the many changes both design wise, and artistically and I have always been inspired by the concerns for AIDS and other projects like the Whitney artist items that have brought art into daily life. However, as a consumer and activist, I was shocked by one of the buttons you are promoting in your “VOTE” campaign.
I was in your shop in Walnut Creek this weekend, and purchased a button that says “VOTE TWICE”. I was perplexed by this statement, as it is illegal for any citizen to vote twice and seeing the GAP encourage voter fraud was shocking. I bought the button as evidence, and kept the receipt as I am still outraged that your company is selling this propaganda to a group of voters, many who have registered for the first time. I also complained to the sales girl who said I was not the first person to say that this was a very innappropiate message and that she did not have a proper response from corporate regarding this controversial button.
Is this the type of message you want to go to our voters, youth, and new immigrants who are learning what America is, how our voting laws work and what our laws represent?
I think this button should be pulled, and a full page advertisment in newspapers, and on your official website saying that this is indeed not the intent of GAP to encourage voter fraud.
I will no longer shop at GAP, Old Navy, Banana Republic, or PIPERLIME again until I understand why this message was supported by the GAP, as this will only encourage your design team to continue to spew hatred of our legal system and create permission to do something illegal.
This letter will go to media, as well as my email list encouraging many others to complain and stop supporting GAP, either by selling their shares, or not spending our money at your establisment.
I look forward to a prompt response on your positon regarding “VOTE TWICE” buttons.

You can’t make up this stuff.
(I’ll be posting the contact information for The Gap later today)
The contact information is a fax number since, as Allyson found out, The Gap doesn’t accept outside emails: 614 564 2077 this is the liason to the Customer Relations and CEO.
