Director Election Information

Wright-Hennepin’s electric service territory is divided into nine districts, each of which is represented by a board member. The members from each district elect their own director to serve on Wright-Hennepin's board. Board directors meet monthly to provide financial and operational oversight, establish policy and rates, and represent members’ voices in the cooperative’s operations.

Elections for districts 2, 5, and 7 took place at WH's Annual Meeting on Thursday, April 20, 2023. A brief recap of the meeting is available.

In 2024, districts 1, 3 and 9 will have Director seats up for election. In 2025, districts 4, 6, and 8 will be up for election.

How do I vote in an election?
All Members are mailed a ballot a couple weeks prior to the election, which is held at WH's Annual Meeting in April. The date varies, but is generally the middle of the month. Members may vote with the mailed paper ballot and return it via mail, online, or at the Annual Meeting. The ballot includes instructions for voting online. Members may only vote once. Voting is open until the day of the Annual Meeting.
