Corn producers to hold elections
The Texas Corn Producers Board will hold elections in two of its five voting regions to elect five board members where current members’ seats are expiring. Election is conducted by voting regions and will be held from Thursday, Jan. 9, until Thursday, Jan. 23.
There are four seats open for election in Voting Region One and one seat open for Region Four. Gonzales, Guadalupe, Karnes, and Wilson counties are part of Region Four.
Corn producers eligible to vote in the elections are persons, including the owner of a farm on which corn is produced or the owner’s tenant or sharecropper, engaged in the business of producing corn or causing corn to be produced for commercial purposes for at least one production period during the three years preceding the date of this election (Jan. 23, 2014). For the producer to vote in director elections, the producer must reside within one of the counties stated above to vote in the respective voting region.
Voters will be voting for qualified candidates who have sought nomination within the respective Texas Corn Producers Board voting regions where elections are to occur. Daniel Berglund of Wharton County has been nominated for Voting Region Four. Voters may also vote for board members by “writing in” the name of any eligible persons.
The elections will be held by mail ballot. Ballots containing the nominations of all persons who have validly filed will be available Jan. 9, at grain elevators and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service offices in each of the appropriate voting regions, or by writing the Texas Corn Producers Board. All voters otherwise qualified to vote as corn producers must reside in a county within the voting region where they seek to vote.
For a ballot to be valid, it must be mailed to the Texas Corn Producers Board, 4205 N. I-27, Lubbock, TX 79403, with a postmark date of no later than Jan. 23.
