In response to the urgent need for supplies and support at the state and local level this election, Business for America has launched Operation Vote Safe.
The national, all-hands-on-deck, nonpartisan initiative is mobilizing civic-minded businesses to support a safe and secure election by donating PPE, equipment, and related supplies to state and county election officials.
