Election Day, November 8, 2022, is around the corner. Room & Board believes that we’re part of something bigger, and that it is each of our civic duties to share our voice and vote. Democracy depends on all of us to thrive.   

That’s why Room & Board will be closed on Election Day. While we have always provided flexibility and time off to vote, we are taking it one step further this year. We want to eliminate any potential barriers that could keep our staff members from participating in Election Day.  

Federal Election Day is now a company-wide paid holiday. Therefore, our stores, delivery and distribution centers, and central headquarters will be closed. Staff members are using this day to cast their votes and volunteer at their local polling locations. The only location that will remain open on Election Day is our Seattle store, with staff receiving a floating holiday.  

Room & Board will be closed on election day so our employees can vote.

Check out some of the partners we are proud to work with.

In 2020, Room & Board joined the Time to Vote movement with other businesses dedicated to increasing voter turnout.  

This year, we began supporting Nonprofit VOTE, a nonpartisan organization that helps nonprofits integrate voter engagement into their ongoing services. We also are proud sponsors of their National Voter Registration Day program, the largest single-day voter registration drive in the country.  

 See you at the polls.

    I stand up and applaud the decision Room & Board made. Your respect for people and the potential circumstances one might encounter speak to the ethos of your company. Thank you

    I knew I liked your company for the quality, design, made in America and your store staff / delivery staff/ phone center staff …. But now I absolutely LOVE your store for taking the lead on making voting a priority!

    Way to do it R&B! From your emphasis on made in America by American craftspeople to your get-out-the-vote (and a paid holiday for your employees, yay) you rock it. My favorite furniture store once again.

  4. Delia says:

    Thank you R&B for supporting Democracy for all! I hope that you set an example for other businesses, especially those invested in maintaining America’s future as a leader of the free world (which should be all US businesses). I already patronize your store because of your commitment to “made in the USA”, and because of the quality, value and style of your products . Now I feel even more strongly about doing so. Every step in the right direction builds momentum towards ensuring a better future for all Americans.

    So glad that my favorite home furnishings store treats its staff well! Now more than ever, I am committed to shopping at Room and Board first!
