We would like to acknowledge Vicki Day, Josinda Feldstein and Paula Summerfield for providing several of the Trump and Clinton buttons. Summerfield secured the "Love Trumps Hate", "Maryland Supports Hillary", and "History is Made" buttons. Josinda Feldstein acquired the "Hillary for Michigan" and "Bill for First Dude" buttons for the site. An additional "American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) for Hillary" button secured by Robin Summerfield, who was a Maryland Delegate at the Democratic National Convention could not be included due to space limitations. I went with a second Libertarian button instead.
