Voting & Elections
One distinction of the cooperative difference is that PEC is democratically controlled by its members. We embrace democracy through our annual Board of Directors election, in which PEC members elect other members to serve as directors, and in some years, in which members vote on proposed Co-op initiatives. Director candidates are nominated by members through a petition process.
Voting typically opens in May, and our members are able to submit ballots online, through the mail or in person at the PEC Annual Meeting, where elections conclude and voting results are announced each June.
