Saskatchewan Pulse Growers Election

How to make your electronic vote count

THE DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS to fill two spots on Saskatchewan Pulse Growers (SPG) Board of Directors was September 15 at 12 PM CST. There were four nominations put forward to fill two spots on the Board of Directors, so there will be an election. You may find the tips below for online
voting helpful.

This is the third year that SPG has offered growers the ability to cast their votes online. If you took part in the online format from the previous two years, these tips will just be a refresher. 

In the event of an election, if you are a registered producer, you will be receiving an envelope in the mail that looks like this:

Inside this envelope you will find your six digit ID number to vote online, as well as these online voting instructions: 

  1. Open any standard internet browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox) from your computer or mobile device.
  2. Type in in the address bar.
  3. Enter your six digit ID number when prompted.
  4. Confirm your eligibility to vote by clicking/checking the eligibility box.
  5. Take a look at the candidate profiles and place your vote (for up to a maximum of three candidates).
  6. Watch for the automatic confirmation your vote has been received.
  7. If you are interested in receiving publications via email, click the SPG website link ( to provide your email address and consent.

NOTE: If you prefer to vote with a paper ballot, the election mail out will provide contact information to request that a paper voting package be mailed to your address. Watch for the green envelope and call for a paper ballot early to ensure you have sufficient time to receive/return your ballot before the close of election on November 24, 2017.

Please watch for additional election communications from SPG in the coming weeks!
