My freshman year of college was BEYOND memorable. One of those fond memories included going to a freshman Halloween costume party. My close girl friends didn’t want to go, but you can’t stop me from going to a Halloween party. So me and a guy friend ended up going. I dressed as Beyonce and I assume he was Jay-Z. Long story short, I didn’t even know there was a costume contest, and we actually won!

Even as an adult, I love Halloween costumes and having a costume contest is a great way to get party guests excited about dressing up.

Free Halloween Costume Contest Ballot Printable

This free Halloween Costume Contest Ballot Printable is available as an instant download digital file for personal use. It is a U.S. letter size 8.5×11 PDF file with 4voting cards on a sheet. The cards are sized 3.5×5 plus bleed and cut lines. The addition of the cut lines is perfect if you plan on having them printed at an office shop, such as OfficeDepot, and request paper cutting service, so that they cut for you.

When printing PDF files, ensure that you print at the default size. Do NOT select fit to page. Instead, print at 100% scale default size.

If you choose “fit to page” the design will shrink down in size. While it is not a deal breaker for this design, it can ruin pre-sized printables that need to be specific dimensions to fit correctly.

What Paper to Use for the Halloween Costume Voting Form

You don’t need a lot of craft supplies for this printable. While I usually recommend our brand of paper, the voting ballots are perfect for printing on standard letter size white cardstock. Or you could go the less expensive route and just print on plain copy paper. This is best since guests will be writing on it.

You’ll also need scissors or paper trimmer to cut the cards down to size.

Costume Contest Awards

Think of this costume contest like the Tony Awards or Golden Globes. It can be just 1 winner, but it doesn’t have to be. Instead of doing 1 winner for best costume, consider having winners in different categories. For instance, you can have prizes for the scariest costume, best couple, most creative costume, and funniest costume. Then you can present the contest winners with their award or prize.
