KEEP COLLIN COUNTY VIBRANT. VOTE IN YOUR LOCAL ELECTION.

 

Corporate Engagement

We believe well-informed, actively involved voters are the key to Collin County’s continued success.

Want to make an impact at your organization but don’t know where to start? We’ve got resources to help you start a productive yet neutral conversation.

 

CORPORATE VOTING ADVOCACY

Get your office involved in voting by hosting an event with us. Our experts can educate your team on the voting process, candidates, key county issues and more! Contact us for more information.

DO'S

  • Keep employees informed on key voting dates & events.
  • Consider hosting a non-mandatory Election Day Party.
  • Post a voting calendar in your office.
  • Send employees an email before the November election period with resources, such as a key issues infographic and voting calendar.
  • Remind employees that they may take off the time necessary to go vote on Election Day.
  • Encourage employees to learn about candidates and issues through to non-partisan, unbiased resources.
  • Watch our candidate interviews here.
  • Use the key issues infographic.
  • Let your workforce know what kinds of policies are important to your business. For example, if healthcare reform is vitally important to your business, it is acceptable for you to explain this to your employees so long as you do not encourage them to support or oppose certain candidates.

DON'TS

  • Make endorsements of any candidates or political parties. Your role is to remain neutral when it comes to how your employees vote.
  • Host any candidates in your space or an event your company is sponsoring unless candidates from all major parties in that race were provided the same opportunity to attend.
  • Give out prizes, recognition or other incentives for voting.
