At YIKES, Inc. we believe strongly in everyone’s civic responsibility to participate in the democratic process. In order to make voting easier, we added Election Day as an official company holiday in 2016. This year we joined the nonpartisan movement Time To Vote to further establish our belief that all companies should encourage employees to exercise their right to vote by eliminating barriers.
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.Time To Vote
