Meet the Candidates

Three seats on Flathead Electric Co-op’s democratically elected Board of Trustees are up for vote in 2022. Did you know that you help to elect trustees from all nine districts? This year’s election is uncontested, but it’s still great to get to know those trustees making decisions on your behalf. Watch a video below of each of the candidates’ speeches from our 2022 Annual Meeting.

Trustee – District 1

Steve Streich

Trustee – District 4

Gary Boe

Trustee – District 7

Thanks to a bylaw change passed by Co-op members last year, you now have the option to vote electronically. If you did not opt-out of your paper ballot, you will also receive a mailed ballot. (Only one vote per member will count. Do not vote online if you plan to mail your ballot.)

The election will close on May 20. Paper ballots must be received by this date and electronic voting closes at 11 a.m. that day.

How to Vote:

Paper Ballot

Paper ballots will start hitting mailboxes the week of April 25 (following the Annual Meeting).

Unless you have opted out of receiving a paper ballot prior to March 31, you will receive a mailed ballot this year.

  • Mark your selections by completely filling in the box next to your choice.
  • Do not mail to the Flathead Electric offices.
  • Detach and place in the enclosed return envelope. Mail to Survey & Ballot Systems, 7653 Anangram Drive, Eden Prairie, MN 55344. Envelopes must be received no later than May 20, 2022. Please allow sufficient time for delivery.

Electronic Ballot

The electronic election opens April 25 at 8 a.m.  Any member can choose to vote electronically this year (regardless if you opted out of your paper ballot or not) by using one of the following methods:

1. Emailed Ballot – if you have an email address associated with your online account, you will receive an email with a direct link to your ballot on April 25 from “FEC Election Coordinator.”  This link will be unique to you and will not require a login or password.

2. My Co-op App – when you log into your My Co-op app, you will see a “Vote Now” button when the election is open. Since you are logged into your app, you will not be required to provide any credentials to access their ballot and vote.

Download the App

3. Your Co-op’s Website  – you can access your ballot here. In order to vote, you will need to prove your identity by providing your member number and an election passcode. The election passcode can be found on your paper ballot or email.
