Farm Service Agency (FSA) acting Administrator Bruce Nelson and Senior Advisor for Tribal Affairs Janie Hipp are advising all eligible Native American tribal members, Hispanic Americans, and African Americans of their right to participate in the ongoing Farm Service Agency county committee nomination and election process.

Farmers and ranchers may nominate themselves or others, and organizations representing minorities and women may also nominate candidates. To become a candidate, an eligible individual must sign the nomination form, FSA-669A. The form and other information about Farm Service Agency county committee elections are available online at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/elections. Nomination forms for the 2011 election must be postmarked or received in the local U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Center by close of business on Monday, Aug. 1. Elections will take place this fall.

Members serve three-year terms. Nationwide, there are about 7,800 farmers and ranchers serving on FSA county committees. Committees consist of three to 11 members that are elected by eligible producers.

To be eligible to serve on an FSA county committee, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by the farm agency, be eligible to vote in a county committee election, and reside in the local administrative area in which the person is a candidate. The FSA will mail ballots to eligible voters beginning Friday, Nov. 4. The voted ballots are due back to the local county office either via mail or in person by Monday, Dec. 5. Newly elected committee members and alternates take office on Monday, Jan. 2, 2012.
