State of the 2020 Election

November 06, 2020

International Franchise Association President & CEO Robert Cresanti released the following statement regarding the state of the 2020 election: 

“Just as hardworking Americans around the country diligently count every ballot as part of democratic process, the systems that have been put in place to protect the right to vote will lead this nation to the right result.  Our procedures have always worked to protect our rights as voters and our trust in all of the institutions and the mechanisms created to protect that right remains as strong as ever. America’s franchise community, from restaurants to beauty salons to daycare centers, has faith that the system will work as intended, allowing valid ballots to be counted and a winner declared at that time. Trust the process and our institutions.”
