2018 Voter Participation Toolkit
For Minnesota Businesses


Dear Minnesota Business Owners and Leaders:

Please consider prioritizing civic responsibility and voter engagement within your company. With help from many of you, in 2016 Minnesota returned to #1 in the country in voter participation. I want Minnesota to stay #1 for many years to come. That is why my office has implemented a comprehensive, nonpartisan voter outreach plan that includes this toolkit. Please customize these messages to suit your situation and share them as frequently as possible with as many people as you can. Voting provides the foundation for all that makes our state and country such wonderful places to live and do business. Thank you for doing your part to help Minnesota maintain the strongest foundation in the country. Get your toolkit 

Steve Simon, Minnesota Secretary of State
