Cooperatives & Government
America's Electric Cooperatives support candidates that understand and support the cooperative principles and way of life of their estimated 42 million member-owners.
Electric co-ops are not-for-profit energy providers that are owned by the members they serve. They provide coverage for 75 percent of our nation’s landmass. They are a foundation in their communities and their consumers are making their voices heard this election on issues that matter most to them.
By participating in the Co-ops Vote program and taking the pledge to make electric co-op issues a priority this November, consumers are sending a resounding message that candidates will need to put our concerns front and center in order to earn our vote. With millions of electric co-op members speaking out with one voice, we are already having a major impact in making our top issues part of the national conversation.
