On Friday, Chief executives and other high-ranking leaders from more than 100 companies including Target, Snapchat, and Uber issued a public statement opposing any measures that deny eligible voters the right to cast ballots.
“We believe every American should have a voice in our democracy and that voting should be safe and accessible to all voters,” the statement said.
The companies are part of Civic Alliance, a coalition that “recognizes that a strong democracy is good for business,” according to its website.
The statement comes as businesses are under growing pressure to condemn legislation in Georgia, Texas, and other key states where Republican lawmakers are trying to clamp down on ballot access.
The Civic Alliance letter said its member companies “stand in solidarity with voters” and that Americans “must have equal freedom to vote and elections must reflect the will of voters.
