The 81st Annual Meeting of the Membership of Talquin Electric Cooperative, Inc. will be held virtually on Saturday, April 24, 2021.
This year, the Cooperative will utilize mail-in voting as approved by Talquin Members via Bylaw changes at the Annual Meeting in 2020. The business portion of the meeting will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 24, 2021. The virtual business portion will be accessible at that time through Talquin’s website, www.talquinelectric.com, or Facebook page.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in-person attendance at the virtual business portion of the meeting will not be available.
Per Article III, Section 5 of the Cooperative Bylaws, each Member shall be entitled to only one ballot. Joint Memberships are allowed only one ballot, whether separately or jointly. Only persons who are Members of the Cooperative are allowed to vote. A spouse or family member cannot vote in the place of the Member.
Included in your Annual Meeting Notice is your mail-in ballot and a pre-paid, addressed return envelope. Survey & Ballot Systems, a third party election management firm, will count ballots. Please do not drop off or mail any ballots to Talquin offices.
Only ballots received by Survey & Ballot Systems by April 14, 2021 will be counted. For replacement ballots, please email Talquin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
