Because VEC is a cooperative, members elect local representatives to serve on VEC’s twelve-member board. These directors participate in setting policies and making decisions and are expected to represent the interests of the VEC membership.
The following seats are up for election: District 2, East Zone At-Large, and West Zone At-Large. Below is the slate of director candidates. Director candidate photos and statements are provided on a separate sheet for each open seat. One seat is available per district.
The election opens at noon on April 13 and closes at noon on May 5. Materials were mailed to members on April 13 and should arrive within a week. Members who need help voting can email email@example.com or call 1-800-832-2667.
Members can vote through SmartHub on their computer or mobile device (you will need to have the latest version of the app), on the election website, or by returning the paper ballot in the envelope provided. Members who do not already have a SmartHub account can create one and vote there.
**Members who vote in the 2021 Election will be entered into a raffle to win a variety of prizes!**
