Around 12.3 million people in the United States are employed by nonprofits.
Nonprofit Staff Vote is a joint campaign* that aims to encourage nonprofit employers to offer employees paid time off to vote on or before Election Day. While most states require employers to offer some time off to vote, less than half required paid time off to vote; and a few do not require employers to give time off to vote at all.
