CUANY introduces Online Voters Resource Center
ALBANY, N.Y. (8/23/12)--The Credit Union Association of New York has created an online resource center to assist credit union professionals, volunteers and members in identifying political candidates that support credit unions.

"Our members want to know if their lawmakers support credit unions," said William J. Mellin, the association's president/CEO. "This online resource center will help credit union members make informed choices as they make their voices heard in the primaries and when they go to the polls in November."

The Voter's Resource Center details state legislators' records on bills affecting credit unions and their 4.6 million members statewide.  It also includes voter resources, such as:

Voter Information:

  • New York State Board of Elections;
  • Absentee Ballot Request;
  • Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Elections Action Center;
  • Locate Your Lawmakers;
  • VoteNY (new voting machine information);
  • Project Vote Smart; and
  • Vote411.org.
State Primary Election Candidates:

  • New York State Senate; and
  • New York State Assembly.
General Election Candidates:

  • U.S. Senate--N.Y.; and
  • U.S. Congress--NY.
Political Action Committee Information:

  • Supporting pro-credit union candidates
The CUNA Elections Action Center includes materials and links to help voters register, request an early vote ballot, mobilize credit union members, and activate on behalf of pro-credit union candidates in the upcoming 2012 elections.
