North Carolina all coop counties
counties with cooperatives highlighted in blue

Of the twenty-six (26) cooperatives all but four (4) furnished
fairly complete information. And though relatively
speaking the 9.8% African-American representation in
governance is better than many even compared to almost
one-third non-white population, much of this is to the
credit of the cooperatives in Pee Dee where one-third of the seats are
held by African-Americans and Roanoke, which stands along in all of
the twelve (12) Southern states as the only rural electric cooperative controlled by a racial minority with six (6) of the nine
(9) seats held by African-Americans. Men hold 87.7% of the seats to the 13.3% held by women in North Carolina where
48.7% of the population is male, and 51.3% is female.
