Board Elections 2019
May 1- May 14 - Voting begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday May 1st and ends at 9:00 pm on Tuesday May 14th.
All Active Members—that is members who have shopped at the Co-op within the past year and are paid up as of April 30, 2019—are eligible to vote. Please note that each membership equals one vote. While other people in your household may share your membership number when shopping at the Co-op, only the person who holds the membership may vote.
Voting will be online and in the store. Ballots will not be mailed to members.
This year we have four seats to fill: one 1-year term, one 2-year term, and two 3-year terms. Each candidate is running for a particular seat, and you may vote For or Opposed for each candidate. A candidate must receive at least 51% For votes to gain the seat.
Four ways to vote:
1. On May 1, if the Co-op has your email address on file, we’ll email you instructions and a link to the vote. Voting opens at noon.
2. If you don't receive an email, you can go to The Food Co-op website (www.foodcoop.coop), click the Vote button, and follow the instructions.
3. If you prefer paper to computers, you can fill out a paper ballot at the store. Look under the Board’s board for ballots and envelopes. Put your ballot in an envelope, sign and write your member number on the envelope, and then deposit it in the red ballot box.
4. Alternatively, you can print a ballot off the Co-op’s website and mail it to The Food Co-op at 414 Kearny Street, with your name, member number, and signature on the outside of the envelope. You can also drop the envelope into the red ballot box at the store.
