The Business of Politics!

As a business it is important for businesses to educate their employees on how policy, regulation and elected officials may affect their jobs.
As employers you have influence! Employees trust the information they receive from their employers – in fact 65% of them are more likely to vote based on the information received from their employers.
As a Chamber we want to empower businesses to allow their employees a positive experience when exercising their power to vote. Businesses can create an environment where their employees can learn about candidates and issues, encourage discussion and develop educated voters for the benefit of the community. The Chamber is challenging businesses to champion this effort and to embark on a journey of creating power at the polls.
There is also a quick sheet of information that can help businesses best navigate the political environment when empowering their employees to go exercise their one our to vote during the election.
