Pedernales Electric Cooperative is encouraging members to vote in its 2011 election, in which early voting ends Friday, June 10. After the early voting deadline, members will have a final chance to vote at the Co-op’s June 18 annual meeting in Johnson City.
In the election, members are voting to select directors for PEC Board Districts 2 and 3, and also to recommend to the Board which system should be used for future director elections.
Members unable to attend the annual meeting can still participate in the Co-op election by voting online at https://www.esc-vote.com/pec2011 or by completing and mailing in their ballot by June 10. Ballots should be returned to Election Services Corporation (ESC) and will not be accepted at PEC offices. Members needing a replacement ballot may call ESC toll-free at (866) 720-4357 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Events for the Co-op’s annual meeting will begin at noon on June 18 at the PEC Training Center, located at 1506 U.S. Highway 281 North in Johnson City. Family-friendly activities are scheduled inside and outside the facility prior to the official annual meeting, which will begin at 2 p.m. Meeting attendees will hear reports regarding the Co-op’s activities during the past year, and members registering at the meeting will have a chance to win door prizes, including:
• A retired PEC pickup truck.
• Energy-efficient Energy Star appliances — refrigerator, washer and dryer, or a microwave oven.
• Give-A-Watt gift checks that can be used to pay PEC bills.
Meeting registration and voting will also begin at noon, and voting will conclude at 2:30 p.m. Election results will be announced later in the proceedings.
