Cooperative directors re-elected at the 2019 Annual Meeting for 3-year terms are: District 1, Allen Nelson, Stovall; District 4, Joe Hilburn, Raleigh; District 8, Joe Eddins, Zebulon

NOTE: Wake Electric has a policy that if we draw the registration card 1) of a church, business or civic organization, or 2) of an employee of Wake Electric who is also a member or 3) of a board of director of Wake Electric who is also a member, then we will grant that member a cash prize, but will draw again until a non-employee, residential account is drawn. When this occurs, more cash prizes are awarded than the number of cash prizes originally advertised.
