Director Election

Stearns Electric Association’s Board of Directors are member-consumers just like you who understand and listen to the community. They represent you on the Co-op’s Board, which is responsible for overseeing the business of the Cooperative and determining its strategic direction.

Are you interested in learning more? View our Director Overview sheet for information on board responsibilities, qualifications and time commitment.

If you want to run for a seat on the Cooperative’s Board of Directors, you must meet the qualifications outlined in the Cooperative’s Bylaws and fill out an application during the annual nominations window, which opens 130 days before the Annual Meeting. The application and director information will be available on this webpage and at each office during the annual nominations window.

Stearns Electric’s service territory is divided into nine districts, each represented by a director elected by the members of that district. Each year, on a rotating basis, three districts elect directors.



The nominations window is closed for the 2023-2024 Director Election. Please see the Annual Meeting page for more information on the upcoming election. If you have any questions, please contact the Stearns Electric Election Coordinator during regular business hours at (800) 962-0655 or by email.

Stearns Electric retains the services of Survey and Ballot Systems, an independent contractor, to conduct the election in conjunction with the Annual Meeting on Thursday, April 4, 2024.
