Co-op Owners for Political Action


As a consumer-owner of Kandiyohi Power Cooperative, you are among 42 million Americans who can claim ownership in a not-for-profit consumer-controlled utility that provides electricity at cost. The ACRE Co-op Owners for Political Action® program is an exciting opportunity for you to raise your voice and participate in the political process.ACRE logo

The Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE®) is the political action committee of the nation’s electric cooperatives. For over 40 years, ACRE has been working to support candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives who understand and support electric cooperatives and their consumer-owners. Through ACRE Co-op Owners for Political Action, you as a consumer-owner have the ability to strengthen this support and join over 30,000 ACRE members who form a strong grassroots network dedicated to the long-term success of the electric cooperative program.

We hope that you will consider this program. Together we will continue to fight for a viable environment for electric cooperatives and the quality of life of the people and communities’ that cooperatives serve. For more information, download the brochure.
