High Stakes for Federal Employees this Election Day; Know the Voting Records Before You Cast Your Ballot
Before you cast your vote tomorrow, take a minute to familiarize yourself with how members of Congress in your area have voted on issues important to federal employees and working families. Casting a vote not only defines our nation’s great representative democracy, but it is also an opportunity for the voting public to hold their elected officials accountable. It is important for all Americans to hold their elected officials accountable, but it is particularly important for federal employees because so many decisions made by Congress and the President of the United States impact federal workers’ pay, retirement security, job security, healthcare, and workplace rights. Nobody has more at stake on Election Day than federal employees.

Democratic Platform Fails to Advocate for Federal Workforce
While certainly better than the destructive GOP Platform adopted at last week's Republican National Convention, the 2016 Democratic Platform does little in the way for federal employees. It is discouraging that a platform repeatedly referencing federal resources and programs fails to mention supporting the workforce tasked with administering those programs. At a time when federal employees are under constant attack from a hostile Congress, we need real allies ready to stand with us in our fight.
