2022 Election Guide

Empowering Your Employees in the 2022 Election

The 2022 midterm elections will be consequential and your employees will want to have their voices heard. Below are some strategies and tools to help you maximize your corporate civic engagement and #GetOutTheVote.

Why is company support for employee voter turnout so important?

  • You can remove barriers to civic engagement
    Work commitments consistently rank as a top obstacle to voting.
  • You are a trusted messenger
    “My employer” continues to rank as one of the world’s most trusted institutions, much more than government and media.
  • You already have the communication channels
    Company communications provide the most consistent platform for sharing information across an increasingly complex — and biased — media ecosystem.

7 strategies to create a voter culture at your company

  1. Share nonpartisan, actionable resources and reminders
  2. Start sharing early so employees trust you as a resource
  3. Recognize Election Day and civic holidays as company holidays
  4. Hold registration drives and add registration reminders
  5. Highlight volunteer opportunities, like working at the polls
  6. Provide flexible “civic hours” including time off to vote
  7. Make the experience, fun, social, and celebratory
