Herrera made the announcement Monday at a press conference at First Financial CU in Albuquerque. Secretary of State staff will set up booths for a day in about 90 credit union branches in 12 counties and register voters throughout July and August. Herrera said her office also will train and certify branch office employees so voter registration can be an ongoing service of the participating credit unions after her employees leave. Herrera, who is on the board of directors of Rio Grande CU, Albuquerque, said that credit unions can offer a great service to their communities by providing convenient locations where residents can register to vote or make changes to their current voter information while doing their regular transactions or running errands. The posters for the voter registration campaign, designed by First Financial CU Vice President of Marketing Adonica Castellano, let members know “We will C.U. at the polls.”
