The Birmingham Section started 2015 with a political reception at the Murray Building Co. jobsite at the old Merita Bread Bakery. More than 150 members were in attendance with city and state officials. Everyone enjoyed a tour of the site as well as barbecue from Joe McNabb and Hendrix Chevrolet.

ConstructionVotes.com & Employee Voter Registration Week

AGC of America is proud to re-launch ConstructionVotes.com<http://www.constructionvotes.com> in preparation for Election Day on November 8.

This website is designed to give our members and their employees the necessary resources for them to make it to the polls and cast an informed vote.  It includes information about voter registration, absentee ballots, and early voting.  Also included are tools to help locate and contact their elected officials.

To help kick off the re-launch, AGC is participating in Employee Voter Registration Week (EVRW) this September 26-30.  EVRW is a national initiative organized by the business community to encourage employee voter registration.  Our belief is that when the employees of our member companies vote, the voices of the business community and construction industry are heard, both loudly and clearly.

Beginning Monday and continuing through Election Day, our members will receive communications regarding:

  *   The re-launch of ConstructionVotes.com and announcement for EVRW
  *   An invitation to a free webinar which will include a national political update and promotion of Get Out the Vote (GOTV) activities
  *   Notice of their state¹s voter registration deadline
  *   Notice that early voting has begun in their state
  *   An Election Day reminder

If you have any questions about ConstructionVotes.com, EVRW, or AGC's Get-Out-the-Vote activities, please don¹t hesitate to contact:
