For the first time in almost a hundred years of history, the award-winning US magazine Time change the head that normally dominates its cover with the writing Vote. “Few events will change the world that will come more than the result of the upcoming US presidential elections,” wrote Edward Felsenthal, editor-in-chief of the historic magazine, motivating the decision. To illustrate the cover of this one-of-a-kind issue, an artist was called who has made political protest the heart of his works: Shepard Fairey, one of the most famous street artists in the world. The woman portrayed on the cover, Fairey explains, “knows there are other challenges to democracy in times of pandemic, but she is determined to use her voice – and her power – in voting.” In recent weeks, dozens of well-known figures of politics and entertainment with stars and stripes are being spent to invite people to the polls despite the danger of contracting the coronavirus, the several hours in a row that are regularly registered at polling stations in the United States and the limitations put in place by many local administrations in the tacit hope of discouraging voting among certain sections of the population. “It is not a decision on which political proposals to pursue, but on which reality we collectively decide to live,” commented Molly Ball, the weekly’s national policy correspondent.
