IDFA Offers Free Posters, Paycheck Stuffers to Get out the Vote

As a part of its DAIRY COUNTS political-involvement program, IDFA is working to increase voter turnout in the dairy industry on Election Day, November 4. By offering free posters and paycheck stuffers, IDFA urges member companies to remind employees that voting is their most important job on Election Day.

"Simple actions like providing access to voter registration materials and candidate information can have a strong impact on boosting voter turnout," said Ashley Ruch, IDFA manager of political programs. "Hanging posters in employee lunchrooms and break rooms and enclosing flyers with company paychecks or newsletters are two easy ways to communicate important Election Day information to employees."

To order copies of the "Your vote counts" poster and paycheck stuffers, complete this order form, or contact Ruch at All ordered materials will be mailed this month.

IDFA encourages employees of member companies to visit the DAIRY COUNTS website to find state-specific information on how to register to vote, update name and address information on their current voter registrations and apply for an absentee ballot, if necessary.

The website also allows visitors to view information, such as incumbent voting records and bill sponsorships on key dairy industry legislation, about all candidates participating in upcoming elections. IDFA believes this information will help dairy industry employees make informed decisions when casting their ballots on November 4.

DAIRY COUNTS aims to inform and engage dairy industry professionals in the political process to ensure a stable environment for the dairy processing industry. For more information on DAIRY COUNTS, contact Ruch at or (202) 220-3534.
