Blue Voters in a Red State Adopt Homegrown Symbol
By Brandon Hollingsworth
Tuscaloosa, AL – Four years ago in Birmingham, Joellyn Beckham and Gina Williams decided they couldn't possibly be alone in their liberal leanings. So they designed a simple sticker to express their views: a bright blue dot in a red square.
Today, the logos decorate vehicles in at least 44 states and they've even turned up on former presidential candidates Howard Dean and Wesley Clark. Pretty high goals for a sticker with humble roots in the Heart of Dixie.
