- Ballots are allocated on the basis of one ballot for every five members of your co-op. All fractions are rounded up. For example, if your co-op has 200 members, your co-op receives 40 ballots.
- There are 8 board seats open at this time. Your co-op can cast votes equal to your number of ballots multiplied by the number of seats open. For example, a co-op with 40 ballots will receive 8 times 40 ballots or 320 votes in total.
The Cooperative Internship Network has just gotten off the ground for 2012!
Do you work at a cooperative business or organization that always has more projects than staff capacity? Or do you know of cooperative businesses or organizations that could benefit from the energy, enthusiasm, and labor of an intern? Read more and apply to host an intern.
Past organizations have included community development groups, food cooperatives, co-op education centers, credit unions, housing co-ops, and community advocacy groups in the U.S. and Canada.
Deadline for host applications is February 24. Deadline for intern applications is March 8.

A broad range of contacts will be essential for passing this bill. Even if your cooperative is not in the districts with House Financial Services Committee members, your members may be registered to vote in these areas.
