Workers shouldn’t have to choose between earning a paycheck and voting. Time to Vote is a nonpartisan movement, led by the business community, to contribute to the culture shift needed to increase voter participation in our country's elections.JOIN THE MOVEMENT
What is Time to Vote?
Time to Vote is a nonpartisan, business-led initiative to help ensure employees across America don't have to choose between voting and earning a paycheck. Participation includes giving employees access to and information about early voting or vote-by-mail options, offering paid time off on Election Day or making it a day without meetings.
Making time to vote is not about partisanship. Employees shouldn't have to choose between voting and earning a paycheck.
Businesses have a responsibility to their people and their community.
This movement is not prescriptive because we know there's not one fit for every company.

The purest expression of any person's freedom occurs in the voting booth - it is our collective moral duty as CEOs to accommodate every citizen in pursuing that privilege.
- Todd Carmichael, CEO of La Colombe
People have fought and died for the right to vote in America and as business leaders we have a role to play in helping our employees participate in the democratic process. This campaign isn’t about any particular party or candidate or issue – it’s about encouraging more people to vote without having to make the hard choice between going to work and going to the polls.
- Chip Bergh, President and CEO of Levi Strauss & Co.
Our democracy simply works better when people go vote. Demonstrating your company’s commitment to voting reinforces the idea that American businesses can protect our democracy. I have been heartened to see business leaders from every corner of the country and across a range of industries prioritizing the health of our democracy and I look forward to seeing this movement grow.
- Rose Marcario, CEO of Patagonia
Our democracy needs strong participation to stay vibrant and healthy. At a time when fewer people are voting than ever, businesses have a vital role to play by empowering our employees to exercise their fundamental right to vote in the upcoming election.
- Eric Dayton, CEO of Askov Finlayson
