Above and below the portrait are three lines of very large lettering which read: [IT'S YOUR FIRGHT / VOTE / IT'S THE GREATEST EQUALIZER]. Beneath the third line of text are two lines of hand written lettering in capitalized green letters which read: [Hampton Voter Registration / Place: Mercury Mall Date: Sept. 25 12:00-5:00 pm]. Beneath the hand written text is a smaller line of printed black text which reads: [The Voter Education Project, 52 Fairlie St. N.W., Atlanta, Georgia 30303 (404) 522-7495]. The poster is creased in a regular pattern that suggests it was once stored in a rolled position; the top third section of the poster's verso is browned darker than the bottom two-thirds.
