Owners, it’s time to vote. Did you know that for our annual election to be valid, 10% of our Owners must cast a vote? So each year, as our co-op grows, we need more Owners to vote. We now have more than 3800 Owners, so this year’s magic number is 380.
We have five excellent candidates willing to serve on our Board of Directors. Our board members are Owners, just like you, and they volunteer their time to ensure that our co-op is fiscally sound and operating in accordance with our mission and values.
Click here to see each candidate’s photo and written statement about why they want to serve on our board.
There are two ways to vote: electronic ballot or paper ballot.
- Electronic ballot: Instructions will be emailed later today to all Owners with a valid email address on record. Look for an email entitled, “Important: Login Info for Co-op Market Board Election.” It will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to check your spam folder, too. If you didn’t receive the email and would like to vote online, please contact Kristin Summerlin, Marketing & Owner Services Manager.
- Paper ballot: If you’d rather vote by paper ballot, they’re available in the store and are being mailed via USPS to Owners with no email address on file. If you receive a paper ballot in the mail, you can bring it to the store the next time you shop, or drop it in the mail.
Remember: Each Owner number gets only one vote, so if you share a number with other members of your household, please consult with them before voting.
