Evoke Therapy Programs Rolls Out Voter Registration Initiative for Staff & Clients
The right to vote is the cornerstone of our democracy, and presidential election years hold particular gravity.
To show its core belief in America’s democratic system and in the importance of every vote, Evoke Therapy Programs is rolling out some special practices in the lead up to November 3rd, 2020.
- As part of its voter registration drive, Evoke will be encouraging and allowing all staff to take paid time during their work days to register to vote.
- Evoke will also allow any interested employee paid time off to be a poll worker on Election Day.
- Any client who will be turning 18 while they are with Evoke will be afforded the opportunity to register to vote so that no matter where they are, they may receive a ballot and vote on Election Day.
- Finally, any Evoke client who is 18 and registered who wants to receive their absentee ballot while they are in Evoke’s care may have it forwarded by their parents to their location, and have it delivered to the field so that they may exercise their constitutional right to vote.
“At Evoke we are committed to being a conscientious company, making the health and well-being of our business, employees, and communities a top priority,” says owner and Executive Clinical Director Brad Reedy. “This commitment includes supporting employees in community involvement and care, and one of the best ways we can do that is by supporting them in voting. We also see it as our duty to provide the same opportunity for clients in treatment.”
