Small businesses: Help make it count!

make an impact on Election Day

It goes without saying the midterm elections is a pretty big deal for our country right now. And according to Business News Daily, small businesses are impacted in the outcomes due to potential for economic growth, tax policies, healthcare policies and more. While things look to be on the up and up for small businesses in general, minority small business owners are especially dependent on local support for quality loan programs, bid opportunities and access to capital.

In the meantime, business owners and supervisors can help others perform their civic duty on election day this Tuesday by providing their employees time to vote. Consider opening a little later, offer some flex time, schedule voting breaks, give them the day off — however you can make it work.

FYI: Uber and Lyft have announced free rides to the polls, making it even easier for people to make their votes count. Join the movement!
