Every Vote Counts

Elections are an opportunity for all of us to make our voices heard on the issues we care about in our communities. That’s why Walmart is helping ensure that voters have the information they need to cast their ballots when they have local, state or federal elections. We continue providing resources to our customers and associates, and are partnering with Time To Vote, a business-led, nonpartisan coalition that aims to increase voter participation in elections.

Voting Resources

Voting is one of our most important responsibilities as citizens

We build a better community when we all participate. Walmart encourages our associates and our customers to participate in the democratic process by giving them the tools and information they need to vote in federal, state and local elections.

Being an educated voter is essential

There are many important details that go into voting to ensure voters can safely cast their ballots. Continuing efforts that began in 2018, customers and associates have access to resources that will help them stay informed and participate in the elections, from requesting an absentee ballot to voter registration deadlines to polling locations and who is on the ballot in their communities.

Supporting associates' participation in the democratic process

Balancing daily responsibilities and civic duty isn’t always easy. On top of any state requirements, Walmart provides associates with up to three hours of paid voting time so they can cast their vote if their work schedule does not provide at least three consecutive hours of off-duty time while the polls are open. We also help associates take advantage of early voting where possible and offer flexible scheduling.
