(WHAS11) -- Some voters look forward to getting one of those "I Voted" stickers after casting their ballot. They wear it with pride and remind others to vote or give it to their kids, but not any more.

Many people contacted WHAS11 from Jefferson County wanting to know what happened to those stickers.

A lot of voters sounded off via social  media asking where their sticker was? Apparently the Jefferson County did away with them six years ago.

One of the main reasons they did away with the stickers is because shortly after voting it didn't really stay on people's clothing too long , it ended up everywhere else.
 
"So many people would take them when they finished voting then they would walk out and stick them on the marble walls, or ended up on the sidewalks and things and they were very difficult to remove, " said Nore Ghibauldy, Jefferson County Board of Elections.
 
But whether you got a sticker or not, a 10-year United States Navy Veteran wants to remind us what the election is really all about.

"I think it’s our civil duty to come out and vote, not for a sticker. If I didn’t vote, I wouldn't feel good for the rest of the year," said the veteran.
 
Some nearby counties Bullitt County, Henry and Oldham still offer stickers.
