Time To Vote is a nonpartisan initiative led by Patagonia, Levis, and Paypal to urge companies of all sizes to give employees paid time off on Election Day.
Ahead of the 2020 election, Time To Vote wanted to create a site for businesses to pledge their commitment to giving employees paid time from work to vote. The organization also wanted publicly provide resources about Election day, early voting, and vote-by-mail options. Ultimately, Time to Vote was looking to develop a site that would be able to reach and inspire companies advocates and voters across the country.
