Co-ops Vote

Co-ops Vote is a program of America’s Electric Cooperatives developed by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), the service organization that represents the nation’s more than 900 private, not-for-profit, consumer-owned electric cooperatives. With 42 million members in 47 states, electric co-ops stand together as a power voice in local, state and national elections.

5-Star Co-op BadgeCo-ops Vote is a non-partisan campaign 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 reliable electricity.
  • Promoting the work of co-ops within the communities they serve.
