Voting Eligibility

As a reminder, there are three ways to be a voting member – each is allowed ONE vote:

1.    Individual Accounts:  This type of account has one owner who IS the primary account holder and IS a voting member.  They are allowed one vote.

2.    Joint Accounts:  This type of account has multiple owners, the primary owner plus one or more joint owners.  The primary owner will be the first name appearing on the account statement. The primary owner IS a voting member.  The other owners are NOT voting members.  This type of account is only allowed one vote.

3.    Non-individual account:  This is a business or organization account.  The entity IS a voting member and allowed only one vote.

Missouri Revised Statute states ….. no person so designated as joint tenant shall be permitted to vote, obtain loans, or hold office unless such person is within the field of membership and is a qualified member.
