The nomination period for the 2018 Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines (FHLB Des Moines) Director Election concluded effective August 2, 2018. Based on Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) designations for Bank directors, the states of Idaho, North Dakota and Wyoming each had one member director seat to fill.

This year, each of the three states with an open member directorship had only one eligible candidate who chose to stand for election in their respective state.

Mr. Bobbitt and Mr. Ferries are incumbent member directors representing the states of Idaho and Wyoming respectively. In 2019, Mr. Bobbitt will begin serving his second term and Mr. Ferries will begin serving his third term. Mr. Bollingberg will begin serving his first term as a member director representing the state of North Dakota.   

Two independent director seats will also be filled in 2018 through a district-wide election. Ballots will be distributed to all eligible voting members for voting in the independent director election on September 27, 2018.
