Washington, DC (September 21, 2018) – Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is launching “Credit Unions Vote,” a campaign focused on getting credit union members to vote in the November elections. The credit union movement fosters an environment of community involvement and is encouraging members to make their voice heard with their vote.
“Credit unions understand that elections directly impact their members,” said CUNA Chief Political Officer Richard Gose. “With the ‘Credit Unions Vote’ campaign we will be reaching out to America's credit unions to make sure they understand how these elections affect them as part of a credit union community, and to encourage them to get out and vote this November.”
The goal of the campaign is to ensure consumers understand their stake in the November elections, both as credit union members and citizens of the country. According to recent data, 44% of registered voters belong to a credit union.
By visiting creditunionsvote.com, credit union members can register to vote, participate in early voting and locate their polling place. Those who use the website can also share social media posts using the hashtag #CreditUnionsVote to help raise awareness for the cause.
The “Credit Unions Vote” campaign is part of CUNA’s innovative Member Activation Program (MAP), a program designed for credit unions to get their members engaged in advocacy. CUNA provides customizable content geared around specific campaigns allowing individual credit unions to deliver the content to members, which in turn empowers members to discover new ways to play a role in the future of their credit union. Additionally, MAP has a virtual community to ask questions, get feedback and share results and resources with credit unions around the country.
Contact a CUNA representative to receive access to the MAP community.
