News & Press
Each year, Tri-County EMC holds a membership meeting along with an election. This year’s Annual Meeting is Thursday, October 19 at 2:00 PM. This year, directors in Post 1 of Districts 1, 2 & 3 are up for re-election. Because cooperatives are owned by the members they serve, it is crucial for members to take part in the election each year to ensure the cooperative is run in a way that best serves its members.
How To Cast Your Vote:
You do not have to attend the annual meeting in order to vote. If you enrolled in online voting before August 30, your voting information will be emailed to you on September 19. If you did not enroll to vote online, you will receive a ballot in the mail by the first week of October. Your paper ballot can be returned via mail to the address provided on the ballot, dropped off at either office by 11:00 AM on October 19 or at the Annual Meeting if you plan to attend. All members that cast a vote will be entered to win a $500 cash prize. For more information regarding the election, click here.
