Utility Elections

Do you pay bills to Golden Valley Electric Association, Matanuska Electric Association, Chugach Electric Association, or Homer Electric Association? If so, you are a part-owner of your cooperative and have a say in who represents you on their Board of Directors! The democratically elected Board of Directors for each cooperative has the ability to create policy and provide direction to management, and their decisions affect thousands of members. Each spring, members have the opportunity to vote on who will represent us in the cooperative.

Why we Need to Vote for Utility Boards!


  • The Board creates important policy for Alaska‚Äôs largest electric utility provider and gives direction to the general manager.
  • Board members can help achieve reaching a goal of 100% clean energy by 2050.
  • We need a regional, collaborative approach to energy generation, usage, and distribution, to ensure accessibility across the state. Your vote can make that possible!

If you are a GVEA member who lives in districts 4 or 7, it's time to vote! 2021 board elections are happening now and as a member owned electric cooperative, your vote has a direct impact on the success and well-being of our Interior communities. You can vote now until June 8, 2021 at 5pm, either by mail or online. For information on each candidate, instructions on how to vote and to view district maps visit: https://www.gvea.com/elections/
