Dear [Insert company name here] Employee,

This month will welcome another election season for Johnson County, and I encourage you to take time to learn about your local and state-wide candidates and make that important trip to the polls on Tuesday, November 6.

In 2014, the last midterm election, just over 50% of registered Johnson County voters cast a vote. That shows there’s obviously plenty of room for improvement. Exercising that civic right to vote is critically important in determining the best course for the cities and state where we live, work, and play. Won’t you join me in working to improve voter turnout this year?  (If your company offers time off to vote or incentives like free ice cream for voters, this is a great place to insert something about these programs)

For information about voter registration, where to vote, how to vote in advance and important deadlines and general voting questions, please visit the Johnson County Election Office by clicking here. For voter information and profiles on the candidates in many races visit the VoteJoCo.com website After you familiarize yourself with the voting process, I sincerely hope that you will take the time to participate in our democracy. We need you.

Regards,

[Employer’s name here]
