Teamsters-Vote2.jpgIt’s election season again, and time to push our elected leaders to listen to the advice of frontline employees.  

The best way to do this is to exercise your right to vote!

  1. GET REGISTERED:  Make sure you are registered by visiting the Voter Registration section of your Union website.  In King County, the deadline to register for the 2014 general election is October 6 for online registration and October 27 for in-person registration.
  2.  GET INFORMED:  Check out your Union’s political endorsements.  Teamster members engage candidates in a thorough interview process.  We endorse only those candidates who publicly commit to support working family issues.    
  3. VOTE!  In Washington State, ballots are mailed to voters 20 days prior to each election in which they are eligible to vote.  Ballots for the 2014 election must be postmarked by November 4. 

If you work in the public sector, your vote can have a direct impact on your livelihood.  Your Union has made its choice.  Now, it’s your turn.  Whatever you decide, make sure to get your ballot in the mail by November 4!
