Explore your 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting
In light of the coronavirus pandemic, Harrison County REC has made the decision to move forward with our 2021 Annual Meeting by hosting through a virtual platform.
What does this mean for members?
Members can catch up with co-op happenings online!
HCREC will post throughout the month of March leading up to our official meeting date (April 5, 2021). We will include updates from Manager Joe Farley, a report from Treasurer Tom Bothwell, and a statement from HCREC board president, Tim Sproul. In addition - our mini members can download their entry for the annual HCREC coloring contest!
Members can vote by mail for the director elections.
HCREC Members should watch for their official HCREC Election ballot in their mailboxes and each member will be entitled to one (1) vote. Also included in the mailing will be an official update from President Tim Sproul and Manager Joe Farley along with financial updates and director candidate information.
After members have completed filling out their ballot they must seal it in the ballot envelope and then seal the ballot envelope in the reply envelope to be mailed or place ballots in the drop box located on the east side of the REC parking lot.
Your individual vote is kept private due to the outside envelope being opened first and then set aside. Next, the “ballot only” envelopes are opened in a separate, and anonymous, process. Without the outside envelope, we are unable to count your vote, as the outside envelope contains your name on it and is the record we have proving who cast the vote.
This system with double-sealed ballots allows the information contained on the voting card to be viewed only by those who will be officially counting the ballots. It is crucial that members use both envelopes to maintain the anonymity of the votes. All ballots must be returned to Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative by no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, April 2nd.
On Monday, April 5th, ballots will be gathered and officially counted by HCREC staff overseen by Dennis Puckett, Attorney for the firm of Sullivan and Ward, P.C. of Des Moines, IA. Results will then be reported and the newly elected directors will begin their service at the May board meeting.
