Union 411: Voting

By AFSCME Staff ·

The choices we make at the ballot box impact everything about our lives: Our pay, benefits, and working conditions. Workers’ rights and public services in our cities, states and nation. Our families and our future. That’s why our union has supported and defended voting rights for generations.

Whether you’re getting out the vote for pro-worker candidates or helping a co-worker register to vote, our activism ensures that our voices are heard on election day and beyond.

In this brand-new video, Secretary-Treasurer Elissa McBride explains the impact of voting and how union members can participate in our democracy.

This video is part of the Union 411 series, which explains union basics. Each video is short and is focused on a specific topic, like the right to form a union and new employee outreach. Check out the entire Union 411 series here!
