Board Elections

Director elections take place at the Annual Meeting in September. In accordance with Cobb EMC’s bylaws, candidates may petition for election to the board. 

Cobb EMC is regulated by a board of nine directors, elected from, and by, the membership to oversee operations and work collectively to represent the best interests of fellow Cobb EMC members. 

Directors are Cobb EMC members who live in Cobb EMC's service area. The nine positions are elected on a rotating basis for three-year terms. In accordance with Cobb EMC's bylaws candidates may petition for election to the board

Members interested in running for the board must meet certain requirements and accept all director obligations and responsibilities


Voting for director elections take place via mail, email or at the Annual Meeting in September. Members have three options for voting in director elections: 

  1. Online ballot
  2. By mail-in ballot
  3. In-person at the meeting

Election packets will be mailed and emailed in August.
