NAIFA encourages all insurance and financial professionals to vote in local, state, and federal elections and to encourage others to follow their example. Approximately 63 million Americans who are eligible are not even registered to vote. Encouraging your colleagues, team, and clients to register is a great first step and a way to show your dedication to participating in the democratic process.
It also provides great opportunities for you to reach out and connect with clients.
- Do you have any clients with children who recently turned 18 (or will soon)? Reminding them that their kids are now eligible to vote and offering voter registration information could be very helpful.
- Promoting voter registration and participation can open inroads to other conversations about grassroots advocacy work you do through NAIFA that benefits clients. Let clients know that you are working for them and your community with legislators to promote policies that favor financial security.
NAIFA is a partner of Employees Vote, and will commemorate Employee Voter Registration Week, September 18-22, and National Voter Registration Day, September 19, with materials and posts sponsored by NAIFA’s IFAPAC. NAIFA’s Get Out the Vote resources site provides a wealth of information on elections, voting, voter registration, and our elected officials. The site is useful for advisors and consumers, alike, so please share it with your clients. Your clients can also find useful information on NAIFA’s consumer site at financialsecurity.org.
And one last thing: while you’re encouraging others to participate in our democratic process, take an opportunity to confirm your own voter registration. If you’re not registered, what are you waiting for? Get registered today!
