Last month, Bluebonnet members should have received a form in the mail that allows those who cannot attend the co-op’s annual meeting on May 8 to vote “by proxy” to fill three seats on the board of directors. If you can’t attend the meeting, we encourage you to read the bios of the six candidates and return your proxy in time to be counted.
The forms were mailed by Election Services Corp., the third-party company that oversees the elections. If your form did not arrive, or you’ve misplaced it, you can pick one up at a Bluebonnet member service center in Bastrop, Brenham, Giddings, Lockhart or Manor. You may also ask that a new form be mailed to you by calling 800-842-7708.
Your proxy form must be received by Election Services Corp. by May 1, or hand-delivered to a member service center by 5:30 p.m., May 1.
Your vote is very important, and filling out the proxy form is easy.
All you have to do is mark your choices on the form and designate either Bluebonnet’s proxy committee or another individual to cast your vote. You may also choose to allow the proxy committee — or that individual — to select candidates for you.
Be sure to write your Bluebonnet account number on the form and return it in the postage-paid, pre-addressed envelope provided.
If you need help filling out the form, call 866-720-4357 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information on Bluebonnet’s annual meeting and bios on the six candidates running in this year’s election are available on the co-op’s website.
