2022 Election Information


Online voting instructions:

• Above and to the left of your ballot is your Member Number and your Election Passcode. Use both of these numbers to login.

• Once registered, follow the online voting instructions. 

• Online voting begins April 25 and ends 11:59 PM ET on May 25, 2022.

• Do not mail your ballot if you plan to vote online.


All members in districts 3, 6, and 9 will vote for their respective trustee. The Board of Trustees seats come up for election every three years. One trustee is elected for each open district seat to represent that district. The district seats are staggered each year so not all 10- board seats are open at one time. 

The Board of Trustees are also requesting all members to approve a change to the code of regulations. Review the proposed change here.

The 2021 Annual Meeting minutes will need to be approved during the 2022 Annual Buisness Meeting. 

Please cast your vote and return the ballot in the self-addressed envelope provided or vote online (election opens online on April 25). Consider casting your vote online to avoid potential delays in mail delivery and reduce postage rates for the cooperative, which helps control costs for our members. Your ballot must be received by May 25, 2022, to be counted. Ballots cannot be accepted at our office.
