Political convictions aside, one thing I am certain of is the importance of making yourself heard. This does not pertain solely to choosing Trump vs. Biden, or Republicans vs. Democrats, etc. – but also making decisions that impact your community on a local level. School boards. Cannabis legislation. Council members.

Understanding what’s up and down the ballot before casting a vote may create meaningful change for you, your family and members of your community.

There are also numerous opportunities to support others’ right to vote by volunteering. Examples include signing up to participate at polling locations so they can stay open to move people through the line and count votes, and driving disadvantaged voters to the polls (regardless of their decision). Overall, we support the rights of our colleagues to create an environment that is pro-voter, and pro-democracy.

My partner Matt Bretzius and I also understand that Election Day is likely to cause stress, angst, emotion, elation and loss for many. With mental health so important now as we endure the ninth month of Covid-19, we want to provide the flexibility for our team to unplug as much as possible on November 3.

In January 2020 we made the decision to give off on Election Day, November 3, 2020. Now, we are proud to add the name of FischTank PR to the nonpartisan Day for Democracy Initiative, and hope anyone reading this message is allowed the time to exercise their right to vote.
