“Cornerstone, Horizon & Plainsview credit unions contracted CUES to conduct our membership vote for our upcoming merger. This was the first time a large number of our members had participated in an electronic voting process for credit union business. CUES was amazing to work with. They kept us well informed of the process from the very beginning and did regular check-ins throughout to ensure we stayed within our timelines. The membership vote was very successful with no issues at all. I highly recommend CUES eVote!”
