Vote by Absentee Ballot

If you are not planning to attend the 2019 DCEC Annual Meeting, you can still make your vote count by requesting an absentee ballot.

One method for a member to be eligible to vote by absentee ballot is to request a ballot by completing an official form (available HERE, CLICK HERE) and submitting it to the Cooperative by August 31, 2019. 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 16, 2019 (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.

Members can also complete an absentee ballot in person at the Co-op office during regular business hours between August 31, 2019 and September 16, 2019. You must have a government issued photo ID with you to vote by absentee ballot in the Cooperative office.

Members can return the ballots either in person to 39 Elm Street, Delhi, by mail to the DCEC office at: P.O. Box 471, Delhi, NY 13753.
