At CoServ Electric, your voice and vote matter because Democratic Member Control is a key Cooperative Principle. We are governed by our Members, and those who are elected to the CoServ Electric Board of Directors actively participate in setting company policies. Because you elect fellow CoServ Members to represent you on the Board of Directors, you have a voice in how your electric company is run. Per the CoServ Electric bylaws, each year, eligible Members can apply to be candidates for election to the Board of Directors, vote in the Board of Directors election and attend the Annual Meeting, where the election results are announced. Ballots are returned to and counted by an independent Election Official. Interested in serving? Article IV of CoServ Electric's Bylaws covers election, tenure, voting districts, terms, nominations, and qualifications.
