Farm Service Agency nominations
The nomination period for local Farm Service Agency county committees is ongoing. To be eligible to serve on an FSA county committee, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and reside in the local administrative area in which the person is a candidate. To become a candidate, an eligible individual must sign the nomination form, FSA-669A. The form is available at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/elections.
FSA will mail ballots to eligible voters beginning Nov. 5. The voted ballots are due back to the local county office by Dec. 3. Newly elected committee members take office Jan. 1.
