Business Roundtable Members: Make Election Day a Holiday for Your Employees.

Having the right to vote is only useful if we have the time to vote.
Have you ever struggled taking time out of your busy day to vote? You’re not alone:
Nearly 60% of voting-eligible Americans did not vote in our last midterm elections, and whopping 35% of those people said that scheduling conflicts with work or school kept them from voting.
And yet, since the dawn of Tuesday as Election Day, the federal government has never attempted to make Election Day a holiday. So instead of waiting for Congress to act, we're asking business leaders to step up.
No one should have to choose between working and voting.
The Business Roundtable is a group of CEOs from the largest companies in America, who specifically determine model behavior for corporate governance, including many great examples like paid family leave. If these companies take a stand to make Election Day a holiday for their employees -even commit to 2 hours of paid time to vote- they will set the example for voter participation in our country.
Join us and call on them America's top business leaders to make Election Day a holiday at their companies.
