InterDigital Takes Off Election Day

October 5, 2016 / Posted By: Kelly Capizzi

By giving its employees paid time off to vote on Election Day this year, InterDigital is joining over 250 other technology companies, including Spotify, Autodesk and SurveyMonkey, in the TakeOffElectionDay campaign.  

“We are proud to join this campaign as a way to support civic engagement and political participation by our employees,” said Jannie K. Lau, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of InterDigital.  

On Tuesday, November 8th, all of InterDigital’s U.S. offices will open at 1:30 p.m. in order to allow employees ample time to vote. Moreover, all employees who bring in an “I Voted” sticker or other reasonable proof of voting that afternoon will be entered into a raffle for prizes.  

“I applaud this step. This is a big help for me since I have a long drive and it has always been a race in the evening to make it to the poll booth in time,” commented Sudhir Pattar, Senior Staff Engineer.
