Are You Tired of Being Reminded to Go Vote?
By: Ina Steiner
Ads on TV, phone calls during dinner, and now, even the Google doodle
is reminding us to vote - and it's only the midterms. This level of fervor is usually reserved for presidential elections that come only every four years.
eBay also urged members of its "Main Street" program to vote through an email this week that provided links to resources
including instructions on how to find local polling places.
We haven't seen any reminders from tech or ecommerce companies that instruct people for whom they should vote. But it's become common practice for them to advise users on certain issues as they arise. For example, eBay and Etsy have been lobbying Congress to pass federal sales-tax legislation, and many tech companies weighed in on the Net Neutrality debate.
This is the most important time of year for most sellers, and we can only hope that after being inundated with campaign ads and reminders to vote, people will wake up on Wednesday eager to engage in some retail therapy. Go Shop!
