Claiborne Electric members of record in District 4 may vote in this election. The member casting the vote must be listed as the primary account holder. For instance, if an account is listed in a husband’s name, a wife may not vote on his behalf. In the case of joint memberships, either account holder may represent the account to cast a vote, but the account will receive only one vote.
Each member will receive only one vote, even if the member holds multiple accounts. Members must vote according to their primary account, which is the account tied to their membership number. For instance, if a member owns a primary residence in one district and has a secondary account in a different district, the member is allowed to vote only in the district where his primary account (residence) is located. If any member has questions about how an account is listed, the member should call our office at 318-927-3504 or 318-368-3011 prior to the district meeting.
Each vote must be cast in person, and members must present a photo identification to vote. Any members in line to vote at noon will be allows to cast a ballot.
A business or organization that is a member of Claiborne Electric may appoint a person to cast a ballot for the organization. The person appointed must present a letter, printed on the organization’s letterhead and signed by the leader of the organization, naming that person as a voting delegate for the organization. One person may not cast a personal ballot and an organization ballot.
