IBEW 1049 Launches Voter Registration Campaign
The IBEW is asking all of its members to register and vote for pro-union candidates in the 2018 midterm elections
The IBEW is launching a nationwide campaign to register our members to vote so we can vote in this year's primaries and the general election. Even within my union, Local 1049, we have a number of members who are not registered to vote. If you had been registered previously, it is possible you're now listed as unregistered because you've moved, changed your name, or haven't voted in the last few elections. Our Local is actively ramping up our political mobilization efforts this year, and you play a critical role. Politicians already know that we vote - in much larger numbers than the general population - but member participation this year is more important than ever. The IBEW International Office has strongly requested that we ensure our members are registered to vote.
