WASHINGTON (1/15/08)—-Forty-four percent of registered voters are credit union members, according to the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), which gears up get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts again this election year. “We want to make it easy for credit unions engage members with a turnkey approach to voter activism,” said CUNA Political Affairs Senior Vice President Richard Gose. The new offerings include:
* Online voter registration; * Request an early or absentee ballot; * Polling place locator; * Election schedules; * Get-Out-The-Vote posters; * A Guide to Election Year activities; and * A free election year electronic newsletter.
GOTV statement stuffers will be available soon. The new resources are integrated with other political offerings, such as Project Zip Code, said Gose. CUNA’s online materials can be linked from credit unions’ websites. "If credit unions don't vote, credit unions don't count,” said Gose. “It's time to be counted."
