Latino Credit Union, in collaboration with Democracy North Carolina, will be registering voters at all Latino Credit Union branch locations across North Carolina. Bilingual volunteers from non-profit organizations Democracy North Carolina, El Cambio in Winston-Salem, El Pueblo, and the Latin American Coalition in Charlotte will register voters from Monday, September 24 through Friday, September 28 in an effort to increase voter turnout in the state. The voter registration drive will coincide with the National Voter Registration Day on September 25, 2012.
“Our goal is to provide a safe and easy way for members and non-members to register to vote,” said Erika Bell, vice-president of Strategy & Services at Latino Credit Union. "If members of the community who are eligible to vote need to register or update their information, they can conveniently do so at their local credit union. It is another way to help encourage voters to exercise their right.”
Voter Registration forms along with voter rights information will be available in English and Spanish. Members and non-members of the credit union are encouraged to visit any of the Latino Credit Union branches to register to vote during the week. Branches are open from 9:00am-5:00pm Monday - Thursday and Friday from 9:00am-6:00pm. For a full list of Latino Credit Union branches and their address, please visit www.latinoccu.org.
