WASHINGTON-The Washington Post recently ran an article featuring businesses that allow people to register to vote through their Web sites, including CUNA. In an effort to increase voter turnout, particularly that of credit union employees and members, CUNA has a link to local boards of elections on their Web site, under the Governmental Affairs section, that will allow visitors to either register to vote or obtain an absentee ballot, CUNA Vice President of Political Affairs Richard Gose explained. It is available in English and Spanish. While Americans were able to register to vote online last elections, the online absentee ballot is new this year. “Anything we can do to help increase voter participation, we think is a positive,” CUNA Senior Vice President of Governmental Affairs John McKechnie commented. Gose added that 42% of registered voters are credit union members. “We’d like to see that participation increase,” he said. “We’re really proud of this because I think it just represents another step in our ability to involve the credit union movement in the political process,” McKechnie said.
