About the webinar:

The November elections are less than 100 days away. Like most things in 2020, the election will look very different this year, but the need to practice our cooperative principles and values—including democratic participation and exercising voting rights—remains the same. 

To help our co-op members practice these values, the USFWC, NCBA CLUSA, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association have partnered on the Co-ops Vote program to help cooperators and those we serve get registered to vote on this year’s National Voter Registration Day, September 22, 2020.

Co-ops often serve as more than just a place of business. They play a central role in the community and especially during a pandemic are uniquely positioned to engage in this way, including helping people register to vote, act as a conduit of critical voting information, and helping people make a plan to vote. In this webinar, presented in English and Spanish, we will share information about National Voter Registration Day, why voting this November is important, and how your co-op can play a part in ensuring a high voter turnout this election.

In the meantime, here's ways to get involved as you prepare for the November Elections

  • Click here to participate as a National Voter Registration Day host on September 22. NCBA has set a goal to get 50 cooperatives to participate in National Voter Registration Day. Will your co-op help us meet that goal?
  • Listen to the Along These Lines podcast episode featuring NRECA’s Laura Vogel and Non-Profit Vote’s Brian Miller on initiatives and resources for cooperatives.
  • Check out this toolkit or visit vote.coop for more opportunities, for example: 
  • Invite candidates to virtually speak with your co-op, 
  • Add the vote.coop link on your co-op’s website, 
  • Watch this webinar from Non-profit Vote on Digital Voter Engagement Tools During the COVID Pandemic,
  • Send an email to your co-op’s member owners with voter registration information, or 
  • Creat a Co-ops Vote insert for your member-owners or customers to be included in an invoice, receipt or delivery.

Sobre el webinar

Las elecciones de noviembre están a menos de 50 días. Como la mayoría de las cosas en el 2020, la elección será muy diferente este año, pero la necesidad de poner en práctica nuestros principios y valores cooperativos—incluso la participación democrática y ejercer el derecho de votar—sigue siendo necesario.

Para ayudar a nuestra membresía cooperativa a practicar estos valores, la USFWC, NCBA CLUSA, y la Asociación Cooperativa Eléctrica Nacional Rural está colaborando con el programa Co-ops Vote para ayudar a les cooperadores y las personas que servimos a inscribirse para votar en el Día Nacional de Inscripción de Votantes, el 22 de septiembre, 2020.
