Outpost's Board of Directors is elected by the owners of our co-op.
Outpost's Board Election to fill three directors' seats runs from 9:00 a.m. on March 20 to 9:00 p.m. on April 3, 2019.
NEW IN 2019: Eligible owner voters were sent an individually-assigned voter ID number!
- This year we're working with a new licensed election provider, Simply Voting Inc., to provide you with the best and most secure voting experience for our Outpost Board of Directors election.
- Eligible voters should have received a postcard in the mail prior to the beginning of the election that informs you of the log-in information you will need to vote.
- If you didn't receive your election postcard by March 20, 2019, please contact Outpost's Cooperative Offices and we can help you obtain the information you will need.
Or Vote by Paper Ballot:
Pick up a paper ballot at any Outpost service desk and return it to that store's ballot box. You must show your owner card to receive a paper ballot.
Please note: Outpost Bylaws state that only owners who are active in their Fair Share thirty days prior to the date of distribution of election notices are eligible to vote. That date is January 31, 2019.

OUTPOST OWNERS: Your vote supports local entrepreneurs!
In 2016, violent unrest broke out in the Sherman Park neighborhood of Milwaukee after a fatal police shooting rocked the community.
In the weeks following, community conversations identified the need for safe, welcoming neighborhood spaces, and certain leaders in the community decided to take matters into their own hands in order to foster change. In the hopes of moving forward — the idea for the Sherman Phoenix was born.
The Sherman Phoenix transformed the fire-damaged BMO Harris Bank building located at the eastern gateway to the Sherman Park neighborhood into high-quality space for small businesses-of-color offering diverse foods, wellness services and cultural activities. Updates to the neighborhood include much-needed community spaces to curate art exhibits, film showings, and cultural events.
