Co-op members understand the power of the vote – it’s in our DNA. With Americans holding more than 350 million co-op memberships and rural electric cooperatives serving 75% of our country’s land mass: we have the power. OPALCO, the Orcas Food Co-op and San Juan Island Food Co-op encourage you to register to vote, cast your ballot and advocate for friends and family to show up on Election Day, too.
October is National Cooperative Month and a great time to celebrate what it means to be a co-op member: democracy, community and resiliency. Please join us for treats, refreshments and voter registration at co-op member appreciation events in October:
