Voters have said that they do not feel like their voting experience is complete until they can show off their fancy stickers.
Voting stickers look different across the country, and counties within each state have a different sticker.
As the election looks to be a long and tiring process, these little stickers have proven to bring a smile to many voters' faces. Voters stick these stickers on their shirts, laptops, water bottles and even their cars.
Voting stickers are more than just a sticky piece of paper. They are a symbol for every voter that their voice has been heard and they have fulfilled their civic duty.
Here are some first-time voters showing off their new stickers and describing how it felt to vote in such a historical election:
