At goodr, we look like we slam margaritas all day, but we don't. We slam piña coladas all day. Also, we treat some things with reverence. LIKE DEMOCRACY. In 2020, we started the Just Flocking Vote campaign to encourage everyone to exercise their right to vote. This year we're renewing the campaign for the midterm elections, and launching a brand new pair of sunnies!!!
If you're a batsh*t crazy basement dweller who believes in conspiracy theories about Martha Washington coming back from the dead to be our Zombie Queen, don't email us with baseless complaints. We don't care WHO you vote for...as long as it isn't Carl the Flamingo. (A rich drunk pansexual kleptomaniac flamingo is fun to drink with...but should NOT have political power.)
Voting isn't always easy. But it's worth it. Make a plan in case your governor's an asshole who suppresses the vote by installing obstacle courses and booby traps at polling places. Also, do your research. Don't just vote for whoever has the least nose hair. Or the most nose hair. Or the prettiest — look, forget about the nose hair. Focus on the issues. Non-nose-hair-related issues.
So put on your Just Flocking Vote sunnies, and exercise your right to vote. You made time to watch hundreds of hours of reality shows about cake, alcoholic housewives, and sassy drag queens. You can make time for this. (Plus the first 250 orders come with a complimentary "Just Flocking Vote" pin!!!)
ELECTION DAY IS A PAID HOLIDAY AT GOODR.
Yes, you read that correctly... At goodr we believe that voting is a right, it doesn’t matter who or what you vote for. We believe that voting is a right, and a person’s ability to vote should not be suppressed by their employer, but empowered. Because of those beliefs we decided to make Election Day an official paid holiday at goodr. Hear more from the Chief Executive Octopus himself on this week’s mini bonus episode of the CULTURE goodr podcast. In it Stephen Lease outlines three steps to help convince you or your employer why your business or place of employment should also acknowledge the right to vote by making it a paid holiday for all employees.
HAVE YOU HEARD OF BALLOTREADY?
goodr has also partnered with BallotReady, which provides free, nonpartisan voter resources including the ability to look up ballots and request mail-in ballots in advance.
BallotReady is on a mission to create a more informed democracy by preparing voters across the U.S. with fact-checked, nonpartisan information on every race and measure that will appear on their ballots. BallotReady also provides other nonpartisan voter resources, like making plans to vote safely through early voting and vote-by-mail, based on the rules of each jurisdiction in all 50 states. BallotReady helps impassioned voters scale their impact and get out the vote with tools for SuperVoters and BallotParties. BallotReady tools have been used by brands like Snapchat and the Miami Heat, as well as public figures like Kerry Washington, Lizzo and the Jonas Brothers.
IS THERE ANYTHING LEFT (OR RIGHT) TO SAY?!
At goodr we believe that voting is a right, it doesn’t matter who or what you vote for. We believe that voting is a right, and a person’s ability to vote should not be suppressed by their employer, but empowered. (Yes, we know, we repeated ourselves. Tryna’ make a point here.) What are you waiting for? GO FLOCKING VOTE RIGHT NOW!!!
