BOSTON, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- A Day for Democracy today announced that the leaders of Pennsylvania businesses, representing more than 18,000 employees in the state, have joined the initiative and pledged to help their employees vote in the upcoming elections. In taking the pledge, these executives committed to giving their employees time off to vote, and/or to help their employees register and exercise their right to vote in local, state and national elections on their terms – whether at polling locations or from the safety of their own home.

The CEOs and business leaders who took the pledge come from a diverse range of industries across Pennsylvania. Organizations taking the pledge include Qlik; Willig, Williams & Davidson; Vanguard Group; Wind River Holdings; Northeast Capital Fund; Hamilton Lane; Armstrong Flooring; 13th Chamber; and Segall Bryant & Hamill.

In taking the pledge, these Pennsylvania business leaders joined hundreds of top-ranked firms across the country in industries ranging from finance, real estate and construction, venture capital and higher education, to entertainment, hospitality and health care. In all, more than 370 companies representing more than 1.6 million employees have taken the A Day for Democracy pledge.

"It's crucial that business leaders do everything we can to help our employees exercise their right to vote," said Mike Capone, CEO of Qlik and one of A Day for Democracy's pledge participants. "Joining the A Day for Democracy initiative has been a great way for Qlik to make sure that our U.S. employees have access to the information and resources they need to cast their ballot and make their voices heard."

Qlik, a global leader in data integration and analytics, also partnered with A Day for Democracy to develop an interactive map that visualizes voter participation in the 2016 election at the county and state level. The interactive map uses the latest publicly available data and allows users to explore voter turnout across the U.S.

"I'm grateful that so many business leaders in Pennsylvania – from such a diverse range of industries – have taken the pledge with A Day for Democracy," said Peter Palandjian, Chairman and CEO of Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation and founder of the coalition. "Together, we can increase voter turnout and make sure that everyone has a voice in our democracy."

A Day for Democracy is a NON-partisan initiative founded by CEOs to encourage employers across the U.S. to take a pledge to help increase voter participation. The initiative was founded in Boston, Massachusetts and has quickly grown into a nationwide movement.
