Elections and Voting

How Can Customers Vote?

You will receive ballots by email. Procedures for each election will be announced in Country Lines.

To vote electronically, please ensure you have the correct email address on file with us. To update that, please click here.

Please also add noreply@directvote.net as an approved sender in your email account. Refer to the support section of your email account for instructions on how to do this.

Please note: Anyone running for our Board of Directors in the current elections must collect signatures of support from fellow MEC electric customers in their district. That means that from time to time, you may be visited at your home or business by someone seeking signatures. You are not required to sign their petition unless you support their effort to join our board.
