KIUC mailed 25,309 ballots and received 7,227 between Feb. 7 and March 8, a turnout of 23 percent.
While there were three available director slots to fill, not all voters chose to exercise all three votes on their ballot; therefore, the number of votes may not equal the total number of ballots received.
Votes were counted by the Connecticut-based Merriman River Group, which announced the official results this afternoon.
The newly-elected board members will be inaugurated on March 25 at 11 a.m. in the KIUC Main Conference Room, 4463 Pahe`e Street in Līhu`e.
KIUC is a member-owned cooperative serving 30,000 customers on the island of Kauaʻi and is the only electric cooperative in Hawai`i. Governed by a nine-member, elected board of directors, KIUC is one of 930 electric co-ops serving more than 36 million members in 47 states.
