We The People

"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer."
- Barack Obama, November 4, 2008

Handmade from an official ballot printed for the 2008 general election, these limited-edition sterling silver necklaces celebrate the historic election of Barack Obama as the first African-American president of the United States.

The ballots featured are either stand-by ballots (used in case the voting machines break down) or absentee, military and special ballots. The double-sided necklace showcases two parties that supported Barack Obama: the Democratic Party and the Working Families Party.

Designed by UncommonGoods in partnership with artist Jeff Davis. Handmade in Philadelphia from an official paper ballot framed in acrylic with a sterling silver ball chain. Each necklace comes with a certificate of authenticity.

I noticed this product in one of your promotional emails. First, it was timely - you were promoting it shortly after the election.
As excited as I had been about the election, I have an aunt who I knew would be more excited. I purchased it for her. She emailed me a few days later and said she was wearing the necklace, she loved it and that she had tears in her eyes when she saw it. She said that Obama as president meant so much to her and that I meant so much to her. She said the gift was so thoughtful.

It was a win-win. You had a unique, timely, qua,lity product that made you shine and made me shine.

I didn't use the product because I sent it back. It was made so cheap. Sorry to say I ordered one for me and then ordered one for a friend. I had to return both ASA they arrived. This gift was one of the worst gifts I have given. All silver would have been a better idea. Understand what you are getting before buying one for you or another.

Great product, not actually wearable

By 

from Augusta GA

Comments about Official Democratic Ballot Necklace:

I really love the idea behind this necklace. My friend is getting her PHD in political science and so I purchased this as a gift for her. It's really neat and the fact that it has a certificate of authenticity is really cool. However, It is not at all wearable on the chain they put it on. It seems they intended it as more of a memorabilia and not actual jewelry. I still love it and would recommeneded it to anyone interested in politics!

Service and delivery comments:

As always, uncommongoods shipped super quickly always comes way before you expect it even when you choose the longest shipping. I love the service and delivery of this site every time

      What a wonderful way to remember the election! Not sure the recipient will wear this as a necklace, but I am certain it will be cherished. Not really the most stylish design, but a great way to remember.

        This was a present for my mother, who loved it. It is a unique way to celebrate a fantastic day in United States history. I wish that the pendant had been a little more sturdy for the price.

          This is a great idea for a reminder of a time like no other, however it is so cheap, plasticy and low quality looking, I had to send it back. Made like it's a piece for kids. The price does not reflect the quality.

              Great Idea but not executed very well. Looks cheap and a necklace should look good. I am retruning this. This should have been done with some metal behind it so it looked good enough to wear.

                Although the necklace holds special memories I was disappointed in the length of the chain. Had I realized how short it was I would not have ordered it. I'll have to try and find a smiliar one but longer, which adds to the total cost being more money.

                  I've never seen this item anywhere. People have been asking where I got it, and I'm proud to say "Uncommon Goods" because shopping at your store shows I have good taste, and an eye for the unusual. For sure, this item is definitely unusual!
