Political Action

 

The Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE) is a non-partisan political action committee of the nation's electric cooperatives.

As a member of Roanoke Electric Cooperative, you are among the 36 million Americans who can claim ownership in a not-for-profit, consumer-controlled utility that provides electricity at cost.

As a member, you have the unique right to make financial contributions to the campaigns of candidates who support electric cooperatives.  You can do this by joining ACRE!

Our ability to serve you and your community is enhanced when supportive legislators understand that their votes matter to members like you.  Candidates who receive support from ACRE get an important message about your interest and support good policy decisions on your behalf.

Help support those legislators who support your cooperative and help improve the quality of life in rural areas.
