All voting should be this easy! If you are a Health Options Member 18 years of age or older you can cast your ballot online for the Board Director candidates of your choice. Voters will elect – or in some cases, re-elect – five of the eight candidates running for open seats. The successful candidates will serve a three-year term beginning January 2021.
Election Services Corporation (“ESC”), an independent third party, is conducting the election and has communicated with all eligible voters. ESC established a website for online voting but will also accept hard copy ballots sent by postal mail. Those ballots must be postmarked by November 5; online votes must be submitted by 5:00 pm ET on that date.
If you need additional information about your voting options, contact ESC at (866) 720-4357 or via email at CHOHelp@electionservicescorp.com.
