We are thrilled to announce that Time to Vote, the groundbreaking coalition led by Patagonia, Levi Strauss & Co., and PayPal, has won the Anthem Award in the Human & Civil Rights category for their National Voter Awareness Campaign.
The Anthem Award recognizes Time to Vote's outstanding impact on the business community and its influence on employees' ability to participate in the democratic process nationwide. With over 2,000 companies now committed to giving their collective 10+ million employees time off to vote, Time to Vote has become a driving force in promoting voter participation and engagement across the country.
Launched in 2018 to address the issue of employees having to choose between voting and earning a paycheck, Time to Vote has motivated companies to provide their employees with information about early voting options, offer paid time off on Election Day, and make Election Day meetings free. The goal: increasing voter participation and turnout.
Time to Vote’s digital presence, powered by Countable, has become a hub for companies seeking to promote civic engagement and encourage their employees to exercise their right to vote. The platform allows companies to join the coalition and access resources they need to promote a culture of voting within their organizations and positively impact their communities.
This award is a testament to the power of Time to Vote and the significant and positive impact the business community can make on society. We are incredibly proud to be a part of this movement and look forward to continuing our work in promoting civic engagement and empowering voters across the country.
