Dear [Insert company name here] Employee:

Another election season is upon us for Johnson County, and I encourage you to take time to learn about your local candidates and vote on or before the primary election on Tuesday, November 8. 

In November 2021, only 25% of registered Johnson County voters cast a vote. While voter participation has been up recently, that still means a small percentage of the registered voters in Johnson County decided which candidates will make decisions that impact everyone. We can do better!

Exercising your 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?

To support and encourage your participation in the voting process, we provide each employee [Insert company policy on absence from work or other perks for voting here].

For information about voter registration, where to vote, how to vote in advance or by mail 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 and you can see candidate forums on the VoteJoCo YouTube channel. I sincerely hope that you will take the time to participate in our democracy. We need you.

Regards,
