Through the America’s Electric Cooperatives PAC (formerly ACRE), the electric cooperatives of Illinois work to provide a strong voice in Springfield and Washington, D.C. Illinois’ Electric Cooperatives PAC is the statewide political action committee established more than 30 years ago to protect the interests of the rural electrification program in our state. Illinois’ Electric Cooperatives PAC is involved in local and statewide political activities that affect your cooperative.

Illinois’ Electric Cooperatives PAC is a bipartisan organization and makes contributions to both Democratic and Republican candidates who have indicated by their voting records or other methods their support for the needs of electric cooperatives and those who live in rural areas of Illinois.

The activities of Illinois’ Electric Cooperatives PAC are governed by a Board of Directors elected annually by the membership.
