Shop at a Co-op with your blue membership card? Look out for your ballot and vote #YesToMotion9 🗳️

(as a regular shopper at the co-op, co-operative party member and a proud Labour and Co-op Candidate in the local Council elections next month you can hazard a guess which way I will be voting on motion 9) 

Dear John,

Do you regularly shop at a Co-op using a blue membership card?

If so, that means you are a member of the Co-operative Group – and as a member, you may receive a voting pack by email or post this week to take part in their annual members' vote.

Every year, Co-operative Group members vote at their AGM on whether to continue the partnership between the Co-operative Group and the Co-operative Party. If you receive a ballot by email or post this week, vote Yes to Motion 9 to ensure our historic and successful partnership continues.

Unsure if you are eligible to vote? You can check if you have met the qualifying criteria on the Co-operative Group's website.



For more than 100 years, the Co-operative Party and the co-operative movement have worked hand in hand to build a society where power and wealth are shared. Today, that work still continues through our partnerships with the various co-operative retail societies.

From standing up for shopworkers to promoting fairtrade and fair tax, together the Co-operative Party and the Co-operative Group are a powerful force for positive change. But to keep delivering on behalf of the co-operative movement, we need your support.

If you have received a ballot, you have until midday on the 16th of May to cast your vote.

If you're voting #YesToMotion9, you can help us now by sharing the news on social media! Just use the buttons below.






If you have any questions about the Party's work over the past year, you can find out more online at or email us at
Voting only takes a few minutes but it means the world.

Yours in co-operation,

Joe Fortune
General Secretary
Co-operative Party
