Proxy FAQs

Four of the seats on Bluebonnet’s Board of Directors are up for election this year. The seats represent District 3 for Bastrop County; District 4 for Lee, Milam and Williamson counties; District 6 for Austin and Fayette counties; and District 7 for Washington County. The term for the District 7 seat will end in 2027 in order to evenly distribute the number of directors’ seats up for election each year. The seat for District 7 has two individuals running: the incumbent Robert Mikeska and Richard Lamensky.

There are two candidates for the cooperative's District 7 Board seat. There are currently no additional ballot items to be decided this year. However, items can be added to the Annual Meeting agenda that would require a vote by members. Those items would have to be added no later than 10 days before the Annual Meeting. Your proxy could be used in that vote, in addition to selecting a candidate for District 7, which is why your proxy selection is important.

Proxy voting allows members to designate another person to vote in his or her place. On the proxy form, members can assign their vote to either Bluebonnet’s Proxy Committee or to an individual. Proxies are counted to ensure at least 1% of Bluebonnet’s membership are present at the Annual Meeting to constitute a quorum. 

Complete the proxy form and return it by mail or drop it off at any of Bluebonnet’s member service centers in Bastrop, Brenham, Giddings, Lockhart or Manor. If you misplace the proxy form or pick one up at a member service center. Proxies must either be hand-delivered to a member service center by 5 p.m. May 2, 2023, or mailed to:
