Response from Chevron to Dollars vs. Democracy scorecard
Americans’ right to vote is core to our democracy. Chevron has long held that our employees should be engaged voters in their communities. That’s why we extend paid time off for employees to vote. We believe any changes to state laws should aim to ensure fairness, openness and integrity in the election process and make it easy for a citizen to cast his or her vote. Ultimately, it is the role of governments and elected officials to transparently resolve issues such as these with the participation of civil society. We support candidates based on a wide number of factors including their views towards the need for affordable, reliable and ever cleaner energy. We engage with and support many elected officials who take positions on a wide range of issues. We are not always aligned with all of their views.
