ABCVotes.com - Get the word out!
ABC is pleased to announce the launch of  ABCvotes.com. Your online election resource with all the tools you and your employees need to make the right decisions on November 4th including:

  • Voter Registration Links
  • Candidate Information
  • Important Election Dates & Deadlines
  • Employee Engagement/Do's & Don'ts
  • VOTE Posters and Paycheck Stuffers


For the first time, we are also expanding the field and include the candidates in your state house, state senate and gubernatorial races as well.  Less than 38% of the voting-age population actually voted in the last mid-term election of 2010.  With Election Day just 50 days away it is up to us as employers to change that. Engage.  Educate.  Vote.
