The ballot box is located inside the store, against the wall past the check stands and under an Election Bulletin Board. Details about voting and election procedures can be found at the Davis Food Co-op Election page, or on that board. You can also find there that there are FIVE (not four) candidates for Director, including a write in candidate who has officially declared (and so can benefit from your vote if you are a shareholder in good standing by 6/1/16).
