NIKE, Inc. Announces Partnership with Time to Vote

August 06, 2020

NIKE, Inc. celebrates the right to vote on the 55th anniversary of the historic Voting Rights Act by joining with Time to Vote, a nonpartisan effort to increase voter participation in U.S. elections.

NIKE, Inc. encourages all eligible U.S. employees to register to vote and is committed to ensuring every employee registered to vote has the access, opportunity and time where needed to cast their ballot. 

“At NIKE, Inc., we believe every voice matters and every vote counts. Regardless of their political affiliation, from education and registration to engagement and participation, Nike will work to support them,” said Hilary Krane, NIKE, Inc. EVP, Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel. “It feels especially appropriate to make this commitment on the 55th anniversary of the day that our country removed barriers that prevented Black voters from casting their ballots.”

“At NIKE, Inc., we believe every voice matters and every vote counts. Regardless of their political affiliation, from education and registration to engagement and participation, Nike will work to support them.”

Because voting laws and processes vary across the country, NIKE, Inc. employee offerings will be tailored to provide adequate time to vote based on each state’s voting laws and requirements. This may include paid time off on Election Day, making Election Day a day without meetings or providing resources for mail-in ballots and early voting.

Time To Vote is a nonpartisan, business-led initiative to help ensure employees across America don’t have to choose between voting and earning a paycheck. Participation includes giving employees access to and information about early voting or vote-by-mail options, offering paid time off on Election Day or making it a day without meetings.
