Your Role in the August 9 Primary Election--Voters Look to Small-Business Owners for Guidance

From NFIB Hawaii June, 2014

Running for office has never been a big thing with small-business owners, only 3 percent do, according to an NFIB poll on political participation. But voting and talking politics are huge. “Disproportionately large percentages of small-business owners are registered to vote (95%), [and] usually do vote (84%),” the poll found.

“The most common public affairs and political activities in which small employers appear to engage include: initiating discussion(s) with an employee(s) regarding the impact of a policy issue on the firm and membership(s) in an organization(s) with a policy/political bent. ... A sense of duty appears to be the prevailing attitude toward public affairs and politics. Ninety-six (96) percent believe that every citizen should participate, if only to vote. Eighty-two (82) percent agree that business owners are leaders, and leaders have a responsibility to lead in public affairs and elsewhere.”

With the August 9 Primary Election ahead of us, small-business owners should prepare to do what they do best: Educate the electorate. To help, NFIB/Hawaii has prepared one page of quick information on the following topics:
