Welcome to the 2018 PEC Board of Directors election

Members will vote for directors in districts 1, 6 and 7

At PEC, you're so much more than a customer. As a member, you have a say in our direction and leadership. Your vote in our annual board election is your voice in our cooperative.

This year, districts 1, 6 and 7 will hold elections, and members in these three districts will be able to vote. Since our transition to single-member district voting in August 2016, members may now vote only for directors who represent their geographic district.

FAQs

May all members of my household vote?
No. Only the registered PEC member may vote. Holders of joint memberships (such as spouses) have a single vote for all matters subject to voting.

What if I have homes in multiple districts?
Your voting district is tied to the account associated with your PEC membership fee. The service location of that account determines your voting district.

What if I have residential and business accounts?
If your business is a sole proprietorship, you likely have one membership with one vote. If you own a corporation with a separate membership, the business may have a vote independent of your personal membership.

Can I change my voting district?
If you would like to change your voting district, you may do so once every three years (the length of a full director term) by calling 888-554-4732. Please note that changing your voting district will also change the account to which your membership fee is associated.

Can I be removed from the PEC mailing list?
We don’t share our member mailing list with marketers, but we do share it with PEC board candidates. To remove yourself from our membership mailing list, voter history list and/or election email list, call 888-554-4732.
