I've been reading some troubling accounts of the Koch brothers and their coercive tactics during the last election. And was wondering if you think it's acceptable to send letters out to workers advising them who to vote for? Do you think that this sort of thing can be construed as intimidation?
For most Koch employees, the “helpful items” included a list of Koch-approved candidates, which was presented on a separate page labeled “Elect to Prosper.” A brief introduction to the list reads: “The following candidates in your state are supported by Koch companies and KOCHPAC, the political action committee for Koch companies. We believe these candidates will best advance policies supporting economic freedom.”Answer Question

To inform people of how their vote my affect their job - OK
To coerce someone to vote a certain way - not ok
But that is why our votes are private. So I guess I find it perfectly acceptable.
