District 5 Director Vacancy

At our May 10 board meeting, our Board of Directors voted to redistrict portions of North Star’s system.  Now there are new boundaries for District 5, which is also a district with a vacancy.  The new director for District 5 will be elected by the members from that district, which is in the International Falls area, at the annual meeting in Baudette on Friday, October 7, 2016.  This election for the District 5 position is a special election for a one-year term.  If you are a District 5 member, your ten-digit electric account number will start with 664, 673, 674, 783, or 784.

If you are a resident in District 5, and you are interested in being a candidate, you may pick up a petition form at our North Star Electric Cooperative office in either Littlefork or Baudette. Please be advised that on the petition form, each mem­bership of the North Star Electric Co­operative is allowed one signature, and in the case of joint membership, only one signature is allowed. (A husband and wife are not joint members unless they have completed a joint member­ship application.)
