Building on a strong foundation of civic engagement

Since its founding, Target has proudly stood in support of democracy and encouraged our team members and guests to get engaged in the civic process and exercise their right to vote.

The following principles guide our decisions on when to engage in public policies related to our elections and voting.

We believe:

  • Every American should have a voice in our democracy.
  • Voting should be safe and accessible to all who are eligible.
  • Elections must be fair and transparent.
  • Equal access to voting is required to have a more inclusive society.


At Target, we promote civic engagement among team members in a nonpartisan and inclusive way through the Citizens@Target network, encouraging team members to actively participate in democracy in a way that matters to them and providing them with the tools and resources to do so.
