Duncan Valley Electric Cooperative, Inc has been named a “5-Star Co-op” by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) for the 2019-2020 cycle! The 5-star designation recognizes DVEC's high level of participation in Co-ops Vote, a national get-out-the-vote campaign. The campaign is a non-partisan effort that seeks to boost voter turnout in areas served by electric co-ops all across the country.
Five-star status marks the highest level of engagement in Co-ops Vote and is achieved when a participating electric co-op completes at least five activities under the program. The Co-ops Vote campaign was launched by America’s electric co-ops in response to continued voter apathy, particularly in rural America. More information on Co-ops Vote is available at www.vote.coop, where people can register to vote and find a variety of voter resources, including information on the candidates, election dates, voting locations and brief descriptions of key co-op issues.
NRECA is the service organization that represents the nation’s more than 900 private, not-for-profit, consumer-owned electric cooperatives. With 42 million members in 47 states, electric co-ops can stand together as a powerful voice in this year’s elections.
