Twenty-six cooperatives hosted National Voter Registration Day events this year as part of a nationwide effort led by Co-ops Vote. The annual civic engagement holiday was held on Sept. 19, with over 3,000 community partners hosting events.

Electric co-ops in Mississippi and North Carolina debuted a new partnership with community colleges in their service territories by hosting voter registration drives on multiple campuses throughout the day. Alongside electric co-ops, several food co-ops hosted events as part of the partnership between the National Cooperative Business Association and Co-ops Vote.
