ABSTRACT

17 Ways Companies Can Help Americans Vote Safely   [open pdf - 146KB]

From the Document: "Every federal election, there are several major, nationwide efforts to encourage voters to register and cast a ballot. But this year is different. Not only will the 2020 U.S. elections determine the future of the country--as elections always do--but the conduct of the elections could have public health consequences as well. COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] has changed many aspects of daily life, but it cannot be allowed to dissuade Americans from voting or put voters' health at risk. [...] Fortunately, there is a lot that companies can do. [...] For example, companies with many young professional employees can encourage them to volunteer as poll workers; companies that own large venues can offer those spaces as additional polling locations; and businesses that are easily able to reach a large audience can advertise key election deadlines and can encourage their users, viewers, or listeners to register to vote and cast ballots early or by mail."
