“Vote November 8, Vote. Coop Keeps You Informed”
Do you know who represents you in Tallahassee? Do you know who represents you in Washington D.C.? Too often the answer to these two important questions, is “no.” We are only a few weeks away from the 2016 General Election on November 8, and if you are looking for more information, electric cooperatives have a tool that can help – www.vote.coop.
Democratic member control is a crucial principle for Central Florida Electric Cooperative, Inc.— it’s how we choose our leadership locally. By voting on November 8 members of CFEC will help to influence our state and federal leadership. Whether it’s on issues related to the development of renewable energy, like Solar, or the future of the Clean Power Plan, how our elected officials represent us in Tallahassee and Washington D.C. will affect our ability to provide safe, affordable, reliable electricity.
IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER
To register to vote in Florida for the November 8 General Election:
If registering by mail, all voter registration forms must be post-marked by October 11. If registering in-person or online, registration will end on October 11.
In addition to registering to vote, you should also:
Encourage family members and friends to register and vote. When you go vote on November 8, take a friend or family member to the polls to vote, too. Pledge to become a co-op voter by visiting www.vote.coop.
When you visit www.vote.coop, browse around for information on candidates, the voter registration process in Florida and other key information. With 42 million members across the nation, electric co-ops are a powerful voice on national issues that have a local impact—an impact that is felt by all of us here at CFEC.
It’s easy to criticize our elected representatives, but if you haven’t voted you are walking away from an opportunity to make elected representatives accountable. Our voice is stronger when candidates understand that cooperative members care and are engaged in the voting process.
Join electric cooperatives across Florida, and across the United States, and vote on November 8.
