Voter Education

We are committed to enhancing accessibility around voting through sharing voter and election resources, and encouraging our team to get out and vote. Whether it’s federal, state, or local elections, it’s more important than ever to make every one of our voices heard.

Actions Taken
Below are action steps we’ve taken recently:

We established 8 additional hours of paid time off for Milk Bar employees to register, vote, canvass, volunteer, or participate in other civic activities of their choosing.

We’ve shared key voter registration and mail in ballot deadlines internally and externally—through company forums and social media communications.

For the 2020 Presidential election, we partnered with Uber Eats, Pizza to the Polls, and various public figures to provide sweet treats to voters waiting on line at their polling places.

As we continue to update this page with new social justice initiatives, we thank you for your time and engagement with Milk Bar while we work towards making the world a more equitable and just place for all.

As a part of our commitment to voter education both internally among our team and externally among our community, below is a communication sent company wide to Milk Bar team members as we approach the 2020 Presidential Election.

Hi Team!

We wanted to share a friendly reminder that the deadlines for voter registration are coming up! Below you will find information on key dates and deadlines in order to vote in the 2020 election. We have also introduced Voting Leave where any employee of Milk Bar can take up to an additional 8 hours of PTO to vote, register to vote, canvass or volunteer in a campaign.

    Conditional voter registration is a safety net for Californians who miss the deadline to register to vote or update their voter registration information. Voters can use the conditional voter registration process from the day after the deadline all the way through Election Day. Eligible citizens can go to their county election office, polling place, or vote center to register and vote conditionally. These ballots will be processed once the county elections office has completed the voter registration verification process.

    Also, if you have not completed the 2020 census yet, please do so! The census not only determines congressional representation but more importantly it is used to allocate billions of dollars of funding to communities over the next decade.
