Ways to Vote
The 2019 ballot includes the names of candidates in each of four districts. You are eligible to choose one candidate for each district.
There are several ways to vote in the 2019 election:
- Vote online – If you have a valid email address on file with CREC, you may receive an email containing a direct link to your ballot. If you do not have an email address on file with us, or you do not receive the email link or prefer not to use it, you can still access online voting. Type directvote.net/crec/ (available starting on July 9) directly into your web browser (not into a search engine) to access the login page of the 2019 Cuivre River Electric Cooperative Ballot. You will be asked to provide your member number (without the dash or numbers after the dash) and the zip code of your billing address.
- Vote by paper ballot – You can request a paper ballot by contacting Survey & Ballot Systems, who facilitates the election for CREC. Call 952-974-2339 between 8 am and 5 pm Monday-Friday or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Complete your ballot and return in the postage-paid return envelope. Do not mail or bring your ballot to Cuivre River Electric or to the annual meeting.
- Vote at a CREC office – If you do not have a computer at home you can visit a CREC office (Troy or Lake Saint Louis) and vote online at a computer kiosk.
- Vote at the annual meeting on August 22 – A voting station will be open on site at the annual meeting at our Lake Saint Louis branch office. You will need to bring your driver’s license or ID and a copy of your electric bill if you have it, in order to register and vote.
