There are four at-large seats open. Three are three-year terms and the fourth seat is a one-year term. The candidate who receives the fourth highest number of votes will serve the one-year term. There is one designated employee director seat open for a one-year term, fulfilling the final year of a vacated seat. Current employees of Seward Co-op are eligible to run for the designated employee director seat. Employees are ineligible to run for an at-large seat this year. This is because Seward Co-op bylaws restrict the number of employees on the board to two, and one at-large employee director is currently mid-term.
Paper ballots will be accepted at any co-op location or can be mailed. Voting is open through the annual meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 22, when election results will be announced.
