National Voter Registration Day, which takes place on September 20, 2022, is just over two months away! Become a community partner at https://bit.ly/coopsvote.
NCBA CLUSA has been excited to see the early engagement from cooperatives across the country participating in the Twin Pines Voter Project to engage with candidates and help your member-owners and communities register to vote. For example, Flat Iron Cooperative in Bellows Falls, Vermont has hosted six candidate meet-and-greets at their co-op in just their first six months of being open!

According to the National Voter Registration Day 2021 Annual Report, co-ops were critical organizations to help people register to vote or update their registration last year. Co-ops—alongside libraries, veteran organizations, government offices, and high schools—accounted for approximate one-third of all community partners.
Co-ops have a customized link that will show the strength of the cooperative community participating in National Voter Registration Day 2022 at https://bit.ly/coopsvote to host a virtual or in-person voter registration drive this year.
Leading up to the national civic holiday, our Co-ops Vote partners at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association have created new resources and additional features for cooperatives to use at the Vote.coop website.
