Nominations and Elections

Link to: ELFCO Board Self-Nomination Form - 2018

The Board of Directors consists of up to nine members elected by ELFCO's owners. Elections are held annually for three-year terms. Look for information on upcoming elections in the spring of each year. Occasionally, a seat becomes vacant between elections; the sitting Board of Directors may fill the vacant seat upon a motion passed to approve the appointment of a qualified owner who has submitted a self-nomination form.

2018 Election: Owner/Member balloting starts no later than April 14 and ends at 3:00 p.m. on April 29 at the 2018 ELFCO Annual Meeting. Ballots will be sent to the email address you have on file at ELFCO, and will include a link to the candidate statements. Be sure to update your email address if necessary. As well, we can send you a ballot by email without otherwise adding your email address to the general ELFCO email list; just let us know by contacting ownerservices@elfco.coop. Thanks!
