Board of Directors Election

The annual Seward Co-op Board of Directors election begins Monday, Sept. 25. All co-op owners for whom the co-op has a current email address will receive a link to vote online. A paper ballot and election brochure will also be mailed to co-op owners.

Co-op owners elect the board of directors—one vote per household. Help maintain our healthy co-op democracy and participate in the direction we take as a community-owned business by casting your vote.

This year, there are three at-large seats up for election. Two seats are three-year terms and one seat is a one-year term. The candidate who receives the third-highest number of votes will serve the one-year term.

New This Year!
The board of directors hosted a Candidate Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 3 at the Creamery Café. The candidate forum was an opportunity to hear from those willing to serve on the board and to mingle with fellow co-op owners.

Voting for the board is important and easy:
* Read the candidate essays and watch their videos.
* Select up to three candidates.
* Cast your vote online or mark your paper ballot.

Paper ballots are accepted at any co-op location or can be mailed. Voting is open through the annual meeting on Monday, Oct. 23, when election results will be announced. Click here for more information about the board of directors, or email
