Of course if you work for Duncan Channon, you’re likely already doing something good for democracy. Thanks to the midterm election volunteer PTO benefit, over 20 percent of DC’s 60-person staff took a new voting-related action including 7 employees – along with DC’s co-founder and chairman Robert Duncan – who are volunteering at local polling locations for the midterms.

“When I volunteered for the first time in the 2016 presidential election, it struck me how vital it is to have passionate, civic-minded workers supporting voters at the polls,” said J. Moe, DC art director. “As an election official, you’re on the front lines of helping people through the process and ensuring their right to vote. It’s an overlooked, yet powerful way to contribute.”

“Our agency’s best ideas about how to be a better member of our community often come from our employees,” said Andy Berkenfield, CEO, Duncan Channon. “Moe suggested that offering paid time off for election day volunteering was something we could do to improve the condition of voting in America — and the midterm elections felt like a great moment to double down.”

Way to go DC. And everyone else? VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
