*** Voting in the 2020 EnergyUnited Board of Directors Election is now closed. We appreciate your engagement and participation in this year’s election process. Each year, EnergyUnited members elect three directors to represent each of our three districts and your vote is incredibly important in helping the cooperative elect uniquely qualified board members. *** 

 

Why Should I Vote?

Part of the value of being a member-owner of EnergyUnited is the opportunity to participate in the annual election of our board of directors and choose our cooperative’s leadership. The board of directors that you elect has the final say on all major decisions made by your cooperative, from the policies that are set to the rates we charge for electricity to overseeing the chief executive officer position that manages EnergyUnited’s daily operations.

How Do I Vote?

Members will receive a ballot either by mail or email. Members who have shared an email address with the cooperative will receive an electronic mail ballot. All other members will receive a mail-in ballot in the U.S. Mail. If you choose to vote by mail-in ballot, you should return the ballot in the provided postage-paid envelope and send it directly to Survey and Ballot Systems. If you have not received an electronic mail ballot or a mail-in ballot, please contact Survey and Ballot Systems directly at 952-974-2339 or by email at support@directvote.net. To be eligible to vote, you must have been a member in accordance with the cooperative’s bylaws.

When Do I Vote?

If you shared your email address with EnergyUnited, you will receive electronic mail ballot. Otherwise, you will be sent a mail-in ballot in the U.S. mail. You can add or update your email address by logging into My Account on www.energyunited.com.

Nomination and Election Process

Members are nominated to be director candidates by the 2020 Nominating Committee (PDF) or by Member Petition. The EnergyUnited Board of Directors Election is independently administered by Survey and Ballot Systems (SBS). The 2020 Credentials and Elections Committee (PDF) certifies the EnergyUnited Board of Directors Election results and makes the final decision concerning any election related issue.

For more information on the cooperative’s Nominating Committee and Credentials & Election Committee, please refer to the cooperative’s website or Connect (the member newsletter included in each issue of Carolina Country magazine), and the Cooperative’s Bylaws. For more information on the independent administration of the EnergyUnited Board of Directors Election, please contact Survey and Ballot Systems at 952-974-2339 or by email at support@directvote.net.

Due to our commitment to social distancing to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we encourage potential candidates to contact members of the Nominating Committee as opposed to pursuing signatures on a member petition. The member petition requires 250 signatures that must be collected in person. In consideration of the health of our members, we recommend simply contacting nominating committee members by phone instead to begin the process of becoming a candidate.
