In November and December of each year, the Co-op publishes the election information and candidate form in the newsletter. Return the completed form to the co-op to be considered as a candidate by the Nominating Committee from your district. The Nominating Committee must choose two names to appear on the ballot. If more than two candidates are interested in running for a board seat, any persons not chosen may get 20 signatures from members in their district on a Nomination by Petition form, and upon submitting it the co-op with 20 valid names by the deadline for the petition, you can also be a candidate on the ballot. Directors are elected by voters in their district. Ballots are mailed to each eligible member. They may be returned by mail, in person or members may vote at the annual meeting.
Directors serve three-year terms.
With the later annual meeting date for 2021 (July 13), the deadline for submitting the Board Candidate Form has been extended to 4:30 p.m. on March 31, 2021.
Any questions on voting or elections can be answered by a quick phone call to the office at 1-800-494-6272.
*Summaries from the monthly meetings of the Board of Directors are published in our monthly newsletter “McLeod Cooperative Power News”. This publication is posted online on the Newsletters page.
If you would like to attend a Board Meeting please contact the Administrative Assistant at the Co-op for details.
McLeod Co-op Power offers home visits to new members of the Co-op. The meeting will give the member a quick overview of all the programs, services, and products offered by McLeod Co-op Power. This also is an opportunity to get common questions answered about off-peak equipment, the electric bill, etc.
New member visits are at no cost to the member.
