Annual Meeting Voting Procedures

Due to the uncertainty of the current COVID-19 pandemic and with the health and safety of our members and employees in mind, Palmetto Electric has made changes to the format of the 2020 Annual Meeting.

MEMBERS ARE ELIGIBLE to register and vote October 8-10.  Here’s what you need to know:

Drive-thru voting and registration will be available on Thursday, October 8, and Friday, October 9, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Palmetto Electric’s Ridgeland office.  Drive-thru voting and registration will also be available Saturday, October 10, from noon – 4 p.m. at the Ridgeland office.

 Your name must appear on the membership/account.

In order to hold a joint membership, both spouses’ names must appear on the account. In the event of a joint membership, either spouse (but not both) may register and vote. (If you are unsure about your joint membership status, please contact any of our four offices or call 1-800-922-5551.)

To register, you must bring your registration card or a valid ID.

To register and vote on behalf of a business, church or other organization, a voting delegate’s name must be submitted in advance to the cooperative.  An alternate’s name may also be submitted. The person so designated must present a valid ID at the meeting to register to vote. Designated representatives must have written authorization submitted to the cooperative no later than 5 p.m., Wednesday, October 7.  (Forms may be requested from any of the four offices or a letter from the organization will suffice.)

All members registering at the Annual Meeting are encouraged to bring their registration card.  This will speed up the registration process.
