Oprah Winfrey announced recently that she was declaring Nov. 3 a company holiday, allowing her employees to vote without the pressure to return to work before they can cast their ballot.
Considering potentially long lines to vote and the possible issues with absentee ballots, let us follow Oprah’s lead and add a holiday to our calendars. Regardless of who your employees decide to vote for, we should make it easy to guarantee that everyone can exercise their constitutional right.
If someone is planning to vote by mail, give them a different day off to volunteer to encourage others to vote.
