A Message from Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Ashli Watts

Employers can play a major role in improving civic engagement among their employees
The people we send to Frankfort directly impact our communities and how we conduct business. Not only is voting our civic duty, but it is a way we can make our regions and state more competitive by electing candidates who support businesses. 

With primary elections coming in May, the Kentucky Chamber has developed a valuable toolkit that you can share with your employees to help them overcome barriers to voting. ​​​​​​We encourage you, as employers, to use these tools to engage your employees in the election process.
