CyberLink Launches #IvoteUwin Campaign to Encourage Employees to Vote
Corp. (5203.TW), today announced a new nonpartisan initiative to get
workers out of the office to vote in the midterm elections this Nov. 6.
Sending out a call to action to employers and workers around the
country, CyberLink is encouraging bosses to let their employees work
from home on election day to make the voting process easier. To boost
participation, CyberLink is offering a free 2-year PRO account for their
unified communication tool, U, to
the company who has the most employees vote this year.

To enter to win the PRO account, employees must tag (News - Alert) their own company
and CyberLink U in a post on Instagram
(@cyberlinkofficial) with the hashtag #IvoteUwin, proving that they
voted by showing their absentee ballot mailed in or their "I Voted"
sticker on election day.
With the average
commute time in the US being close to 30 minutes and no federal law
that requires employers to give their employees time off to go to the
polls, work can be a major interference in Americanscasting their vote.
Allowing employees to work from home on election day is a major factor
in getting more people to participate in the democratic process, and
CyberLink's U is the perfect way to stay in touch with colleagues or
bosses while working remote.
"It can be extremely challenging for American workers to find the time
to vote when they're required to be at the office during the majority of
voting hours, and many employees work too far from home to vote during
their lunch hour," said Richard Carriere, SVP of Global Marketing at
CyberLink. "With U and the #IvoteUwin initiative, we're aiming to help
more Americans work from home while remaining productive and connected
with their co-workers, so they can get to the polls on Nov. 6 and have
their voices heard in the midterms."
