Local farmers are encouraged to participate in the election of the Farm Service Agency county committees.
Each county committee is composed of three to five elected members, each serving a 3-year term. The committees make decisions on county commodity price-support eligibility, establishment of allotments and yields, conservation programs, disaster programs and other issues.
Any agricultural producer who resides within the local administrative area or who is participating or cooperating in an FSA program may become a nominee.
Sept. 3 is the last day to file nomination forms and October 1 is the final date to register with local FSA office to vote. Ballots will be mailed to eligible voters November 8 and ballots must be returned to the local FSA office by Dec. 6.
