We’re only one week away from #NationalVoterRegistrationDay! Join Amicalola EMC and co-ops across the country as we celebrate the largest civic holiday of the year.
What is Co-Ops Vote? The Co-Ops Vote campaign is a non-partisan effort focused on enhancing the political strength of electric cooperatives through relationship building and voter engagement. The main goal of the campaign is to boost voter turnout in cooperative areas, making sure that our members exercise one of their most basic rights – the right to vote. Working in collaboration with states and local co-ops, this effort will educate and engage candidates and voters on important issues like: expanding broadband coverage throughout rural America, ensuring continued access to safe, reliable and affordable electricity and promoting the work of co-ops within the communities they serve.
Co-Ops vote is designed to boost voter turnout – regardless of the party or candidate you vote for. Voting is one of our most important rights as citizens. If you don’t vote, you’re letting others decide who wins and which issues matter. September 20, 2022 is National Voter Registration Day. Take steps now to check your registration status or register for the first time by visiting www.vote.coop
