Credit Unions of all types and sizes are affected by laws and regulations of almost every level of government. When you vote,whether it is a general election or primary, consider each candidate’s attitude towards credit unions and credit union members. Locally in Northern Virginia, on June 12, 2012, registered voters can vote in the Republican primary to select the Republican candidate in the November general election for the United States Senate. In the 8th Congressional District, registered voters could also choose to vote in the Democratic Primary to select the Democratic candidate in the November general election for the U.S. House of Representatives. Where there are both Republican and Democratic primaries in Virginia on the same day, voters may vote in either primary, but not both.
A few years ago, there were many credit unions (presumably associated with Catholic organizations named Our Lady Queen of Peace,or something similar). There was one in Ohio and one in Washington DC at Our Lady Queen of Peace in Washington DC. Now,we (Queen of Peace Arlington Federal Credit Union at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Arlington, Virginia) are the only Queen of Peace credit union left.
