VOTING INFORMATION: Anyone who is a member of record, whether or not the member plans to attend Cherryland Electric Cooperative’s Annual Meeting, may cast a ballot. Only one ballot may be cast per membership.

This year you will be voting for one director from Leelanau County and one At-Large director. Candidate information is in the Cherryland Annual Report inside the center of the May issue of Michigan Country Lines and on the Cherryland website. To be counted, online ballots must be cast by 12:00 p.m. on June 14, 2017. Mail-in ballots must be received by June 14, 2017, at Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) in Eden Prairie, MN.

 HOW TO VOTE: Members have the option to vote online, by mail, or in person.

1. ONLINE: To vote through SmartHub, access your online ballot by logging into your account via Cherryland’s website (desktop only), select the “Vote Now” button in the upper, right-hand corner of the screen and follow the instructions given on the board election website.

If you do not wish to use SmartHub, go to directly to the board election website, enter your ballot I.D. and election passcode printed on the back of your May issue of Michigan Country Lines (see example above) or in the email from SBS, and follow the instructions given on the board election website.

2. BY MAIL: Insert the paper ballot into the enclosed postage-paid “Business Reply” envelope both inside the May issue of Michigan Country Lines, seal and mail. Please do not include anything other than the ballot. Additional or replacement mail-in ballots are not available.

3. IN PERSON: If you do not vote online or by mail, you can vote in person at the Annual Meeting from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on June 15, 2017. If you submit either an online ballot or mail-in ballot, you will not receive a ballot at the Annual Meeting.

All members who cast a ballot will be entered to win a $100 bill credit!
