Do you want to energize your employees and colleagues to vote in the upcoming presidential election? Through its recently-released Get Out the Vote website, SHRM gives you the tools and information to help establish a Get Out the Vote effort among friends and co-workers. It’s time for HR to Raise Its Voice in 2012!
The 2012 elections undoubtedly will be one of the most important in recent memory. With an incumbent president seeking re-election, a hotly contested field of Republican challengers, and the control of Congress up for grabs – every American has a lot at stake come November 6.
Whether your personal interests relate to foreign policy, domestic spending, tax policy or social issues – HR public policy issues are likely to dominate the agenda on both the federal and state levels in 2013. Making sure that your voice is heard is imperative to ensuring Congress and state legislatures enact laws that make sense and help organizations succeed at every level. To help you in this process, SHRM launched http://haveavoice.shrm.org/ during last week’s 2012 Employment Law & Legislative Conference.

- Voter information
- Primary scheduling
- Presidential debate schedule
- Step-by-step instructions on conducting a voter-education campaign
- “Returns Party” starter kit
