National Voter Registration Day is rapidly approaching on September 20th! Is your co-op prepared? As members of people-centered businesses, co-ops are uniquely positioned to support voter registration, share critical voting information and help community members make a plan to vote. There are multiple co-op focused voter registration programs to utilize.
The Twin Pines Voter Project is a non-partisan engagement activity to boost democratic participation among cooperatives through voter registration and voting in public elections. In partnership with Co-ops Vote, the Twin Pines Voter Project educates and engages candidates and voters on issues important to cooperatives.
On Tuesday September 20, 2022 volunteers and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” in a single day of coordinated field, technology and media efforts. According to U.S. Census data from 2020, as many as 1 in 4 eligible Americans are not registered to vote. Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register. National Voter Registration Day wants to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote. National Voter Registration Day seeks to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise. Cooperative businesses are critical partners for National Voter Registration Day!
