ALEXANDRIA, VA – Every vote counts. In that spirit, Democracy Federal Credit Union will be closed on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3.

“The credit union philosophy is all about People Helping People. By empowering our employees to exercise their right to vote, we are standing tall in our communities and participating in our country’s most important decision. Giving our employees the time to vote helps to strengthen our country and economy,” said Ken Cahoon, Democracy FCU CEO.

The unique challenges of holding an election during a pandemic means less volunteers at the polls. The financial institution stresses the importance of people doing what they can to help.

According to a press release, “one of the most common reasons people give for not voting is that they are too busy with the demands of life and work.”

Democracy FCU has joined the Time to Vote nonpartisan movement with 700 companies to to increase voter turnout. To learn about your options for voting, click HERE.
