Political Priorities Survey

Members:Take the 2024 Political Priorities Survey

The 2024 election season will soon be upon us, and as public employees and education workers, we must be sure that our issues are understood by candidates who are running for various offices that are up for election.

In order to better understand the political priorities of our membership as we head into this election cycle, please take the time to complete this, short, 5-minute political priorities survey. Once completed, the union will begin compiling questions to ask the various candidates for the particular offices, and holding candidate forums to determine who will get the union's endorsement.

Check the status of your voter registration or request your mail-in ballot.
