Members seeking nomination have to maintain primary residence in the district they wish to represent. District 6 mostly includes parts of Blanco, Comal and Hays counties.
Verifiable signatures from at least 100 members, who either live within the Board district or have designated a voting residence within the district for which they are signing, are required for nomination.
Petition materials include instructions and forms for submitting petition information, forms for collecting member signatures and maps showing Board districts. Completed petition materials must be received at PEC headquarters by the Secretary of the Board by 5pm on April 9.
After verifying petition signatures and nominees’ qualifications, the Board plans to consider at its April 16 meeting the inclusion of candidates on the ballot. Ballots will be mailed to members by May 9, and members will be able to vote by mail, online or in person at the Cooperative’s June 23 annual meeting in Kyle, at which election winners will be announced.
