Altria’s companies encouraging tobacco consumers to vote but not how to vote

| September 21, 2012

Altria said yesterday that its tobacco operating companies were conducting a non-partisan voter education and awareness campaign for adult tobacco consumers; as they had done in past election cycles.

‘Philip Morris USA, U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company and John Middleton will reach out to adult consumers stressing the importance of voting and encouraging them to make their voices heard on November 6th,’ the company said in a note posted on its website. ‘These efforts are designed to help adult consumers register to vote and participate in the fall elections.

‘Adult consumers can go to, which includes information about the voter registration process, polling locations and candidates for state and federal offices.’
