Information about Board of Director Elections will be posted to this page.

We have a three member, At-Large Board. Each position comes with a three year term, and the terms are staggered such that we hold a re-election every Fall. Nomination Petition Form availability and timelines are publically announced per Oregon Revised Statute guidelines. There is no limit to how many terms a board member may serve. Being on the Board is a serious commitment and it is recommended that those interested in running for the Board attend and participate in several board meetings in order to learn about the legal requirements and business operations of the District.

2020 Election Status:

The District intends to hold a vote-by-mail election November 10, 2020 for At-Large Board Director Position #2. Position #2 is currently occupied by incumbent District Board President, Steve McCarrel. Candidates must file a complete Nomination Petition Form containing at least ten bonafide water right holder signatures no later than October 5, 2020 at 2:30pm at the District Office in order to be on the ballot. Petitions are currently available for pick-up at the District Office by appointment only due to current COVID-related restrictions and closures. It is also possible to have a petition emailed or mailed to you upon request.
