There is a red, white, and blue flag motif on front with white text which reads "MONDALE / FERRARO / FOR OHIO." Above this in red text is printed "VOTE / NOV. 6;" in black text is printed "POLLS OPEN FROM / 6:30 AM - 7:30 PM." There is a black and white photograph of Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro on the reverse along with black and red text urging people to vote in the upcoming election.
