Local Company Plans to Close on Election Day

Johnson Creek Enterprises is the first company in the US to make liquid for electronic cigarettes and vaping devices.

CEO Christian Berkey Says shutting down on Election Day is the right thing to do for his team.

The company did this for the first time 4 years ago for the presidential election in 2012 and plans to keep doing it in the future.

Berkey Says giving employees a paid day off gives them the opportunity to make an informed decision at the polls without feeling rushed or stressed.

Berkey hopes to set an example for other companies to follow, but he understands it's not easy to do.
