Will You Tell Co-Workers Who You Voted For? [POLL]

Election day is tomorrow, but I know a lot of my friends have already voted.  Have you told your co-workers who you voted for or who you’re going to vote for?

A recent survey from CareerBuilder showed that you won’t tell your co-workers who you voted for.

Sixty-six percent of workers don’t share their political affiliation at work, and 28 percent of workers said they feel like they need to keep their affiliation secret around the office.

Sixty-eight percent of employees that keep their lips zipped, do so because they don’t think politics should be discussed in the office.  Thirteen percent keep quite because they think their co-workers support the other guy.

The study also found:

Men are more likely than women to share their political beliefs at work, with 37 percent of men sharing their affiliation compared to 31 percent of women.

“It is easy for a conversation about politics in the office to become an argument about politics,” said Rosemary Haefner, Vice President of Human Resources at CareerBuilder. “For the most part, people want to avoid controversy in the office as much as possible. Avoiding discussions of politics may be one way they can do that.”
