As the 2020 election nears in less than three weeks, it’s important for Washington Retail members and voters at large to know your candidates’ voting records and to understand the priorities that drive their decisions. The retail industry supports 1 in every 4 jobs across the nation.
As COVID-19 pulled the economy into recession, it’s more important than ever for voters to know the candidates who vote for business and the job creation that fuels our state and national economy.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s VoteForJobs website is a great resource to quickly help voters educate themselves on pro-business elected officials. It includes a scorecard that you can search by state that rates members of Congress in terms of their pro-business votes.
Among the site’s many voter tools is a social media tool kit that can help users spread the word about voting for pro-business candidates. It’s equipped with state-specific shareable graphics, sample social posts and related websites using the hashtag #VoteForJobs.
Washington Retail encourages all voters to visit the site for help on casting your vote in favor of an economic recovery.
