Voting Opens for FSA County Committee Elections
November 4, 2016

USDA announced this week that beginning Monday, Nov. 7, eligible farmers and ranchers will be mailed ballots for the USDA's Farm Service Agency County Committee elections.

Voting eligibility is limited to producers who participate or cooperate in an FSA program. Eligible producers that do not receive a ballot by mail are encouraged to pick one up at their local FSA office.

FSA Administrator Val Dolcini said FSA county committee members play a vital role in local agricultural decisions, including decisions on commodity support programs, disaster programs and emergency programs.

He added, "It is a valued partnership that helps us better understand the needs of the farmers and ranchers we serve."
