Your vote matters!

We work with Casey Ratlief, center, of the Grand Canyon State Electric Cooperative Association, to discuss issues important to us. Here Casey and AzGT’s Geoff Oldfather meet with Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann.


Co-ops Vote is a nonpartisan campaign focused on enhancing the political strength of electric cooperatives through relationship building and voter engagement.
The campaign boosts voter turnout by encouraging people in electric cooperative service territories to exercise their right to vote. This effort educates and engages candidates and voters on issues important to electric cooperatives so they can continue to provide safe and affordable electricity in rural areas.

Electric cooperatives are owned by 42 million member/consumers across the nation who can impact the outcome of elections. For the second year in a row, AzGT earned Five-Star status in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Co-ops Vote campaign in 2019. Communications staff were invited to participate in a panel discussion at the NRECA Region 8&10 Conference, October 24, in San Antonio, Texas, where AzGT was highlighted for its success with promotion and engagement using the Co-ops Vote campaign.
