SOUTH KENTUCKY RECC IMPLEMENTS NEW ELECTION PROCESS FOR 2023
Since 2013, voting in South Kentucky RECC's director elections has been by mail using an out-of-state balloting company. Increased mailing costs have now made this process very expensive. To save cooperative resources, this year's director election will instead be held by in-person voting in conjunction with member appreciation days June 6-8, 2023. Important aspects of this new voting process are discussed below.
HOW WILL THE VOTING PROCESS WORK?
Members will register at South Kentucky RECC's annual member appreciation days to vote in person. Once membership is confirmed, the member will cast his or her vote live by marking a confidential paper ballot that will be counted electronically. Each member is limited to one vote.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO VOTE?
In order to vote, you must be the South Kentucky RECC "member" of record, defined as the applicant designated on the written application for membership in whose name the electric service account is titled.
IF I'M UNSURE ABOUT WHO THE MEMBER IN MY HOUSEHOLD IS HOW CAN I FIND OUT?
You can contact South Kentucky RECC's Member Service department to find out whether you or another individual in your household is the "member" of record for purposes of voting in the election by calling 1-800-264-5112. This should be done before coming to cast your vote.
WHEN CAN MEMBERS VOTE?
Live voting will occur during South Kentucky RECC's annual member appreciation days held at its five district offices June 6-8, 2023.
