SECU to promote Citizens Awareness Month
RALEIGH, N.C. (9/22/11)--State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) has teamed with the North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBE) to promote Citizens Awareness Month, a campaign that provides opportunities for North Carolina citizens to register to vote and also publicizes upcoming elections. Throughout September, all SECU branches statewide have available a supply of voter registration applications. Members can pick up an application at their local branch, complete the form and send it to their local Board of Elections office for processing. In the coming months, dozens of municipalities statewide will conduct elections for city and town officials. Voter turnout is typically very low, primarily due to a lack of awareness that an election is taking place, according to Raleigh, N.C.-based SECU. By partnering with NCSBE, the credit union will provide another 238 locations where voter registration applications can be obtained. SECU also published articles in its August Grassroots member newsletter and its September Money Matterz member newsletter for teens. “Every North Carolina citizen who is eligible to vote should exercise his or her right to do so, but in order to be eligible, you must be registered,” said Leigh Brady, SECU senior vice president of education services. “By providing applications in SECU branches, we hope to make the process of voter registration even more convenient for our members.”
