SAN FRANCISCO – Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) CEO Charlie Scharf today issued the following statement regarding voter rights:

“Wells Fargo supports the right of every American to exercise their voice by voting. This is a key pillar of our democracy and we oppose legislation that attempts to limit this right or is discriminatory in nature. We also encourage Congress to establish Federal Election Day as a national holiday, thereby establishing the importance of this right.
