Circulate founder, Corey Populus, note that the design of the shirt came to him while watching a documentary on the Black Panthers, more specifically a poster from Bobby Seales campaign for mayor that stood out to him. The “Registrar” T-Shirt features “EACH ONE REGISTER ONE” on the front and “BECOME A REGISTRAR” on the back. But most importantly, the front of the T-shirt features a QR code that can be scanned by a smartphone to launch registration to become a voter.
