VOTE Tomorrow for A New Accountable Board!

Elections have arrived and it’s time for us to vote for new and accountable leadership on the Cobb EMC Board of Directors. Elections will be held tomorrow, Saturday, November 12 from 8am to 3pm at Piedmont Church in Marietta. The following seats are up for election: 1, 6, 7 and 10; but remember, you vote for ALL seats, regardless of where you live.

Registration and voting for the elections begins at 8am, with a members’ meeting starting at 10am. Polls will remain open until 3pm and as long as you are in the parking lot by 3pm, you will be allowed to vote. Alternate parking will be available at Daniell Middle School, with shuttles provided to the polls. You do not need to attend the 10am meeting to vote, but it’s strongly recommended that you do! 

Please remind your friends, neighbors and colleagues who are Cobb EMC members about Saturday’s elections. We finally have our opportunity to vote new and accountable leadership onto the board and we cannot squander this chance. We need every Cobb EMC member we can find to come out and cast their vote! If they would like more information, please direct them to our website or have them email us.
