Elections & Voting
At PEC, your voice matters. For more than 80 years, we’ve been owned and governed by members like you. Your vote in our annual PEC Board of Directors election is your voice in your cooperative, a chance to weigh in on leaders who will represent you and your interests.
In 2023, voters in PEC’s districts 2 and 3 will elect board directors in the annual election. The elected directors will serve a three-year term. Voting opens May 16 and ends June 9 at 5 p.m.
By voting, members have the chance to win drawings for $400, $100, or $75 bill credits. Prize winners will be announced at PEC’s Annual Meeting on June 16, but do not need to be present to win.
Members vote for board directors who represent their voting district. View the latest district maps.
How is my district determined?
Your board director district is determined by the location of your primary account. If you have accounts in different districts, you may request to change your voting district by calling 888-554-4732. Please note that PEC can change your primary account only once every three years.
Your voting district is shown on your bill beneath your name (on the right corner) under Director District. If you are unsure which district is assigned to your primary residence, please give us a call.

At PEC, we believe in openness and transparency, which is embedded in the democratic election of our board of directors. Democratic member control is one of the Seven Cooperative Principles, and PEC is unique among all electric cooperatives in the high level of transparency and member involvement that occurs in its board elections.
PEC is mindful of our members’ right to privacy. That’s why we take steps to strike a balance between providing adequate information to qualified candidates for board elections, and also limiting access to members’ information. Our Membership List Policy allows the release of names, postal mailing addresses, and PEC voting districts. Qualified director candidates may also get a voter list history with names and mailing addresses and when members last voted.
Members may also opt-out of the release of their contact information by:
- Calling 888-554-4732, Monday through Friday
between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
- Mailing a written request to:
Pedernales Electric Cooperative,
P.O. Box 1,
Johnson City, Texas 78636
Members’ email addresses and phone numbers are not included in any list PEC provides to board candidates.
As a democratically controlled cooperative, you decide who governs. The cooperative’s goal is to provide a transparent, open election, so as to allow you to have the best opportunity to make your vote count. Thank you for helping us be the best member-owned cooperative possible.
