Annual Meeting FAQs

Two incumbent directors are up for re-election at the 2024 Bluebonnet Annual Meeting, Shana Whiteley in District 2, Travis County; and Bryan Bracewell in District 3, Bastrop County.

 

Bluebonnet’s Annual Meeting is one of the many benefits of being a member of an electric cooperative. The meeting, held each year in May, offers members the opportunity to meet the Board of Directors, the general manager and the co-op’s executive staff. Members at a traditional Annual Meeting also elect directors and attend to any business that may come before the membership. 

Two of the seats on Bluebonnet’s Board of Directors are up for election this year, District 2, Travis County; and District 3, Bastrop County.

During contested Board elections, co-op members can vote for directors in all districts. The districts in the co-op’s service area were drawn along Bluebonnet’s service area boundary and county lines. The seven districts are represented by one to three directors based on, among other things, the number of meters in each district. 

There are currently no additional ballot items to be voted on this year. However, items can be added to the Annual Meeting agenda that would require a vote by members. Those items would have to be added no later than 10 days before the Annual Meeting. 

Proxy voting allows members to designate another person to vote in his or her place. On the proxy, members can assign their vote to either Bluebonnet’s Proxy Committee or to an individual. Proxies are counted to ensure at least 1% of Bluebonnet’s members are present by proxy or in person in order to constitute a quorum. The deadline to submit a proxy form is May 7. 

The Proxy Committee is composed of all Bluebonnet Board members whose terms are not currently up for election. This year’s Proxy Committee members are Milton Shaw, Roderick Emanuel, Robert Mikeska, Byron Balke, Russel Jurk, Debbi Goertz and Ben Flencher.

No, the proxy is valid only for the meeting specified on the proxy form.

When you register at the meeting, you may revoke your proxy and then vote in person.
