At a school or college:
Today, we’ll be helping out with voter registration at the Oxnard College Student’s Day of Action. Come join us. No RSVP required. More information here. If you’ve never done this before, we’ll teach you how. If you can’t come today, look for other dates that work better.
At your workplace:
In California, the law requires employers to give up to 2 hours off at the beginning or end of a shift without loss of pay. Advance notice to your company is required by law. Proof of voting is not required. The California Elections Code also requires employers, both public and private, to post a notice no less than 10 days before every statewide election explaining employees’ right to time off to vote. The notice must be posted in a conspicuous place at the work site.
Other state’s information on voting here.
What it could mean for your company to encourage people to vote:
✦ a full day off
✦ a half day off
✦ a couple of paid hours off
✦ a flex day
✦ commit to having no internal meetings that day
✦ adding Election Day to the internal company calendar
✦ send a few reminders to employees to vote
Wherever you are:
Ask people around you if they are registered to vote.
- The people who are waiting in line next to you.
- The people serving you a meal.
- The friends of your kids.
And, if they say no, tell them you can help them get registered right where you are.
For Californians, put these under your contacts as “VOTE”.
