As freelancers, we need to make sure that our country is freelancer-friendly. It’s time to let your voice be heard!

Election day in New York is here again and we’re hoping to see our fellow freelance friends at the polls today.

According to the group Nonprofit VOTE, only 58.7% of registered voters went to the polls on election day in 2012. We can do better than that, people!

New Yorkers, our city ranked in the bottom 10 states for voter turnout last year and this year’s races are important! If you’re interested, Democratic candidate for New York City mayor Bill de Blasio spoke to us earlier this year about the freelance workforce and their place in NYC’s economy. Check out the interview here.

We’ll see you at the polls!
