You may not know this, but for most P&G employees, the deadline to vote the Blue Voting Instruction Form is 11:59 p.m. US-EDT on Wednesday, October 4. We recognize you’ve received many communications related to this year’s proxy contest, but this year is different.

Two important considerations for Voting Blue.


  1. Your vote MATTERS!

Combined, P&Gers hold more P&G shares than any other single entity.* If classified as an institutional shareholder, P&G employees’ shares would rank #1. Together, we own more than five times the shares owned by Nelson Peltz’s Trian. So yes, your vote matters. Some of you have asked… if you don’t vote, will your votes automatically be voted for the Company? The answer is no. If you don’t vote, your votes won’t count.


  2. It’s now or never.

Shares within P&G-sponsored plans must be voted by 11:59 p.m. US-EDT, October 4. The good news is, only the last vote counts. So if you’ve been unsure through the process, or voted an alternative white form, you simply need to vote a final blue form by Wednesday. Note, if you voted “withhold” on a white form, that cancels any blue votes. So please consider making your last vote a blue vote.


We’ll continue to bring you updates as we near the close of this proxy contest. We appreciate your patience and your support as we rally to continue our forward momentum for the future.


Thank you.


The Vote Blue Team
