America works better when Americans vote. But Americans can’t vote unless they are registered!

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 shrink the number of unregistered eligible private sector voters across the country. The initiative does not tell employees how to vote or whom to vote for; instead it provides information to help employers encourage voter registration. During the week of Sept. 25-29, private sector organizations unite to work toward our common goal.

Employers can participate by communicating with their employees and member companies about the importance of registering to vote, learning about the issues affecting their industry, researching the candidates on the ballot, and voting in their next election. Visit the Employer Resources section on www.employeesvote.com.

Employees can participate by registering to vote or updating their voter registration information by visiting www.employeesvote.com. Once there, they can learn more about their state’s voting deadlines and ask their friends and family to do the same.
