Absentee Ballot

Vote by Absentee Ballot
If you are not planning to attend the 2017 DCEC Annual Meeting, you can still make your vote count by requesting an absentee ballot.

VOTE BY MAIL One method for a member to be eligible to vote by absentee ballot is to request a ballot by completing an official form (available below) and submitting it to the Cooperative by September 1, 2017. Once the Cooperative receives your form we will provide you with an official absentee ballot which you can then complete and send back to the DCEC office. DCEC will count properly completed absentee ballots as long as they are received by September 19, 2017 (4 business days prior to the Annual Meeting). Once DCEC has received a member’s absentee ballot it cannot be revoked if the member decides to attend the Annual Meeting and vote once there.

VOTE EARLY AT THE CO-OP OFFICE Members can also complete an absentee ballot in person at the Co-op office during regular business hours between September 1, 2017 and September 19, 2017. You must have a government issued photo ID with you to vote by absentee ballot in the Cooperative office. Members can return the below form either in person to 39 Elm Street, Delhi, by mail to the DCEC office at: P.O. Box 471, Delhi, NY 13753, fax to (607) 746-7548, or email to office@dce.coop.

The Delaware County Electric Cooperative (hereinafter “Cooperative”) will hold its Annual Meeting on September 22, 2017 for the transaction of all lawful business in accordance with its Bylaws and the New York State Rural Electric Cooperative Law. The Annual Meeting will be held at the Delaware Academy Central School, located at 2 Sheldon Drive, Delhi, NY, and the business meeting shall begin at 6:30 pm.

Members who are unable to attend in person are permitted under Article III of the Cooperative’s Bylaws to vote, by absentee ballot, on any and all issues presented to the general membership at that meeting. To be eligible to vote by absentee ballot, members may request that an absentee ballot be sent to them by providing the following information and returning this completed form to the Cooperative.

The Cooperative must receive this request no later than September 1, 2017. Upon receipt, the Cooperative shall send to the requesting member an absentee ballot with instructions for its completion and submission.
