Election Day of Service is not just a day, but an ongoing effort that offers companies the opportunity to show their commitment to fair, safe, and transparent elections by supporting election operations in a nonpartisan and tangible way. Each year, companies participate in this effort to address the needs of elections by recruiting poll workers, offering physical spaces for voting centers, and providing legal support for election workers who come under threat.
Each year comes with its own set of challenges and events that can impact election operations. From the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic to a deeply polarized society, election infrastructure continues to experience issues with finding and staffing polling places and threats to officials in charge of elections. We believe the business community is uniquely positioned to surmount these challenges by supporting elections through their resources, reach, and leadership.
Companies can participate in Election Day of Service in the following ways:
Mobilize employees and customers to serve as poll workers
Offer physical space for voting centers (such as office lobbies or warehouses)
Engage in-house attorneys to support election workers with legal advice
