As a member-owned cooperative, annual meetings provide an opportunity for members to hear reports from officers and directors, receive a financial update, ask questions and learn the results of the director elections.

Survey & Ballot Systems, an independent firm, conducts the election voting and will mail a ballot to every Stearns Electric member two weeks prior to the annual meeting. Members can vote by mail or online. Voting instructions will be included with your ballot.

Any member in good standing may seek election for the Board of Directors in the district in which he/she resides. Members may also volunteer to serve on the Nominating Committee. The deadline for board candidates is typically mid-January, prior to the spring elections.



Members in Districts 1, 7 and 8 who are interested in becoming a nominee for the board of director position in their district are to contact a Nominating Committee member from their district prior to January 22, 2020.
