CalPERS active public agency members can expect a blue envelope that contains their ballot for the special board election in their mailboxes in the next few days.

The election is for one public agency seat on the CalPERS Board of Administration.

Nominees for the position are Richard Fuentes, a special projects manager from the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District, and Mullissa Willette, a tax exemption investigator with the County of Santa Clara.

Active CalPERS public agency members may vote online, by phone, or by mail. Voting instructions are included in the ballot package, along with information about each candidate. Votes must be received by May 16 to be counted. The newly elected member’s term will begin immediately upon certification by the Secretary of State and end on January 15, 2027.

Members who do not receive ballots by April 22 should call (877) 610-8637 to ask for a replacement. Members can also get their PINs online and vote in just a few easy steps.
