Vote only for the candidates names listed above. Leave others blank unless you know they are pro-solar.
2) Is it to late to request ballots from SRP?
SRP will take request for ballots until March 23 and will send them by mail. See the “Request A Ballot” page for more information on how to request a ballot.”
3) My SRP Board of Directors ballot shows a fractional vote (like 0.25), is that all my vote is worth?
No (and yes). When voting for Corey Hawkey and Randy Miller (at-large), the property you are voting is worth at least one whole vote. This is how votes are tallied for these “At-large” seats. And if there are two people on the deed, there are two votes for that property—both names should request a ballot. But if the property is in a Trust, only one the first name to request a ballot gets to vote once for the property. For the Divsion Board and Council races, this year being the even numbered Divisions, it is correct that the acreage based vote count shown on your ballot applies.
