Four directors will be elected, one from each of the following districts: Lincoln County District 3, St. Charles County District 1, St. Charles County District 3 and Warren County District 2.

Candidates will be voted upon Aug. 10 at the cooperative’s Annual Meeting to be held at the Family Arena in St. Charles.
