Get out your buttons, bumper stickers, hats, and banners and join us for #ElectionCollection, a weekly challenge to feature your campaign memorabilia!
The Presidential Libraries of the National Archives and American Experience PBS invite you to share your stories and election memorabilia. Starting tomorrow, we’ll publish a new #ElectionCollection challenge every Tuesday on Instagram from July 26 until the Presidential election on November 8.
We can’t wait to see if you have drawers full of slogan-covered buttons or if your mom saved that can of (Barry) Goldwater. (It was a real beverage! Stay tuned.)
