Ballot box May. 21, 2024

Members will receive ballots in May

North Arkansas Electric Cooperative (NAEC) will conduct the election for two board of director positions, one from Fulton County and one from Baxter County. Both positions are at-large voting, so all NAEC members regardless of location are eligible to vote on both positions. 

Members will receive an envelope with the NAEC logo from Survey & Ballot Systems around the third week of May. The Minnesota company is handling the election and tabulation of votes on behalf of NAEC.

Along with the ballot, the envelope will include the 2023 Annual Report, candidate biographies and a prepaid postage return envelope to mail the ballot to Survey & Ballot Systems. 

Ballots cannot be given to NAEC. They must be mailed to Survey & Ballot Systems and received by June 14 to be considered valid. 

Members on the nominating committee (James Elbert, Izard County; Joe Dillard, system-at-large; Richard Hanson, Baxter County; Randy Jones, Sharp County; and Jeremy Stone, Fulton County) met April 9 and reviewed résumés for the positions. After consideration, they nominated: Beth Carter, Baxter County; and Ted Kerley, Fulton County. A petition also was received from Steve Hall of Fulton County. Results will be published in The Messenger and on NAEC's website. 

The 2024 Annual Meeting will entail only a business session at the co-op’s Salem headquarters at 10 a.m. June 18. Members can watch the meeting live at; a recording also will be posted after the meeting.
