Take a Vote Hour

October 28, 2008

During the last national election in 2004, 20% of eligible voters did not vote because they said they were "too busy" with work or school and never made it to the polls. In hopes of driving voter turnout, Google asked CEOs across America to create and upload short videos to YouTube, encouraging their employees to take a vote hour.

Donald Trump (The Trump Organization), Jeff Bewkes (Time Warner), Shelly Lazarus (Ogilvy) and other CEOs publicly announce their support for employees to step away from their desks and take an hour to cast a ballot on Election Day in this video montage.
