Saks Fifth Avenue is teaming with HeadCount and Vote.org, along with agency partner 160over90, to launch the “Register to Vote at Saks” initiative for both its NYC flagship store and online.
Through Oct. 9, people are invited to visit the second floor of the New York flagship store, where they can register to vote, complete absentee ballot applications and check their registration status. The retailer's iconic flagship storefront windows have messages encouraging onlookers to register and vote.
On Saks.com, visitors can register to vote, check their registration status and access an absentee ballot application through technology provided by Vote.org. In addition, Saks Fifth Avenue is making Election Day a paid holiday for all U.S. corporate associates. In addition, the company will work with associates in its stores, as well as distribution and fulfillment centers, to coordinate schedules to enable them to get to the polls.
