When Businesses Support Their Employees In Voting, It Makes A Huge Difference
7 Oct 2020
Americans’ ability to vote is facing its greatest challenge in decades. Between the Covid-19 pandemic, voter laws that vary by state, and uncertainty about whether mail-in ballots will be counted, many Americans are willing to stand in long lines just to vote early. It is important that businesses support their employees as they do this on election day and the weeks leading up to it.
“Voting rules are complicated and vary from state to state, and most people who don't vote say they simply didn't have enough time,” said Jim Doyle, President of Business Forward Foundation. “When employers share reminders, help employees register, and give them time to vote, it makes a big difference.”
