The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds eligible county committee election voters that the deadline to return 2011 FSA County Committee ballots to the designated FSA office is Dec. 5.
To be an eligible voter, farmers and ranchers must participate or cooperate in an FSA program. A person who is not of legal voting age, but supervises and conducts the farming operations of an entire farm may also be eligible. Producers in each county submitted candidate nominations during the nomination period ending on Aug. 1.
Voters who have not received a ballot at this time, may contact the USDA Service Center at 308-352-4747 to confirm eligible voter status and request a ballot if applicable.
Mailed ballots must be postmarked no later than Dec. 5.
