EVRW 2014: Employees Vote Toolkit
America works better when Americans vote.
This September 22-26th, we are participating in Employee Voter Registration Week (EVRW). EVRW is an initiative organized by the business community to encourage employee voter registration. We have joined this effort in hopes that, together, we can reach our goal of having 100,000 voter forms downloaded during EVRW.
Our belief is that, when employees vote, the business community’s voice is heard. Don't let someone make the decision for you. Get registered. Get out the vote.
In important elections, every vote counts. America works better when Americans vote, but Americans can't vote unless they are registered. There are millions of employees across the US who have not registered to vote. People don't register because they forget, or it's too complicated or time-consuming, or perhaps they have moved and just haven't updated their voter registration.The truth is that registering to vote is simple and doesn't take much time or effort.
Employee Voter Registration Week is an effort to make a dent in the number of unregistered citizens across the country. During this week, companies and associations from the business community will join together in an effort to encourage voter registration among their employees. The initiative will not tell employees how to vote or who to vote for, but instead aims to serve as a resource to help employers educate their employees about the issues that are important to their businesses and a resource for providing key deadlines, voter registration, and polling location information.
Employee Voter Registration Week is powered by BIPAC, a nonpartisan, membership-driven, organization dedicated to increasing the political effectiveness of America's business community.
