How To Vote

Example of the Common Bond voting ballot

1. First step to voting: How do I know if I'm a Thrivent benefit member?

It's simple! If you're a benefit member, you'll get a ballot in your email inbox or your mailbox in early March. (Generally, benefit members are 16 or older and own a Thrivent Financial insurance or annuity product.)

2. I got the ballot: What's the vote about?

It's about whether to extend our common bond from Lutheran to Christian. You can learn more by visiting

Here's an overview:

  • A common bond is a connection shared by members.
  • The vote is to extend it from Lutheran to Christian.
  • It would allow us to help more Christians be wise with money and live generously.
  • Voting is open from March 1 to April 30.
  • This decision is up to benefit members and every vote counts.
