ballot box ash tray (Wahlurnen-Aschenbecher)

A cigarette, a break, time to relax and chat. This ash tray offers smokers a chance to vote and even slightly forces them to. You can vote by disposing of ash/cigarette buds in the yes- or no-tube. As the time passes by the result of the poll can be read like a diagram. The ash tray can be placed in front of pubs (inside German pubs it´s forbidden to smoke), where people meet and might start talking about politics. The sign with the question can be exchanged.
