Commencement of the annual Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines director election is underway. Members in the states of Idaho, North Dakota and Wyoming will each elect one individual to fill the one member director seat in its respective state. Two independent director seats, including one public interest independent director (PID) seat, will be filled through a district wide election.

The nomination and election process for member and independent directors will be conducted electronically through Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS), an outside vendor experienced in administering online elections in a secure environment. On June 16, SBS emailed the Bank’s official announcement of election to eligible voting members in all states. Members in the states of Idaho, North Dakota and Wyoming will receive an online member director nomination certificate, and eligible voting members in all states in the Bank’s district will receive information regarding independent director application forms.
