Voting opened last week for Pedernales Electric Cooperative’s (PEC) board of directors election.
The cooperative’s membership will elect directors for PEC Board Districts 4 and 5. Jimmy Skipton and incumbent Chris Perry, both of Dripping Springs, are running for the District 4 position, and James Oakley of Spicewood is running unopposed for the District 5 position. The candidates are PEC members nominated by member petitions.
Ballots, election information and voting instructions have been mailed to all PEC members by Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS), an independent company managing PEC’s balloting. Members will be able to vote by returning completed ballots to SBS by mail using the included prepaid return envelopes or by voting online through SBS’s secure website. Members who have registered their email addresses with the Cooperative will receive emails with links to the online ballot.
Mail-in and online voting must be completed by June 14. Ballots will not be accepted at PEC’s offices.
Members also will be able to vote in person at PEC’s annual meeting June 22 in Kyle, where election results will be announced.
