To maintain equitable geographical representation of all areas on the board of directors, Hamilton County Electric Cooperative’s bylaws provide for seven areas from which directors are to be elected.
The three-year term of the directors representing Places 4, 6 and 7 expire this year.
- Place No. 4 is the area east of U.S. Highway 281 in Lampasas County served by the Cooperative.
- Place No. 6 is the area south of U.S. Highway 84 in Mills County and west to the Cooperative boundary line served by the Cooperative.
- Place No. 7 is the area north of U.S. Highway 84 bounded on east by Hamilton County line and on west by Cooperative boundary line served by the Cooperative.
As usual, the Cooperative will elect Directors by mail ballot only.
One ballot will be mailed to each membership in a separate mailing on July 12, 2017. Any member may vote for one candidate in each area listed on the ballot. You do not have to live in one of these areas to cast your vote. Please include your name and address on the ballot return envelope so the co-op can use it to confirm voter membership. Voter membership must be confirmed for votes to be counted. Please do not enclose bill payment in the ballot envelope.
The votes will be counted Friday, August 4. Members must mail their ballots in time for their ballots to arrive in the Hamilton County Electric post office box by Friday, August 5, at noon. Results of the Director Elections will be announced later that evening during the Annual Membership Meeting.
