FOR DIRECTORS ELECTION
MUST BE SUBMITTED BETWEEN DECEMBER 1ST – 31ST, 2022
Elections will be held for Directors representing Zones 1, 6, and 7. The first two digits of your Aqua account number is your zone number. The Official Candidacy Application and petition forms are available at Aqua’s administrative office and may also be obtained from Aqua’s website. From the Homepage, select the “Online Forms” tab at the bottom of the page, and you will see a link for the Official Candidacy Application and petition forms. Upon request, forms will be mailed to any Aqua member receiving service or residing in Zones 1, 6, or 7.
Effective September 1, 2011, the law governing elections held by nonprofit water supply corporations does not allow (1) proxies to be cast; (2) nominations for directors from the floor; or (3) write-in votes.
In 2013, the law was further modified, and the Aqua Board of Directors approved new procedures to comply, as follows: A person who desires their name be placed on the Official Ballot as a candidate for a Director position must complete and file with Aqua an Official Candidacy Application, including a petition executed by 20 members located within the candidate’s zone, biographical information, and a photograph, between the first and thirty-first day of December.
To be eligible to serve as Director, you must be a member of Aqua, receive water within the Aqua Zone you represent, be 18 years of age or older and have not been determined, by a final judgment of a court exercising probate jurisdiction, to be (a) totally mentally incapacitated; or (b) partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote; and have not been finally convicted of a felony from which you have not been pardoned or otherwise released from the resulting disabilities.
