Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the nomination period for local Farm Service Agency county committees is open until Friday, Aug. 1.

To be eligible to serve on a county committee, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by the Farm Service Agency, be eligible to vote in a county committee election, and reside in the local administrative area where the person is nominated.

Farmers and ranchers may nominate themselves or others. Organizations representing minorities and women also may nominate candidates. To become a candidate, an eligible individual must sign the nomination form, FSA-669A. The form and other information about FSA county committee elections are available at www.fsa.usda.gov/elections. Nomination forms for the 2014 election must be postmarked or received in the local U.S. Department of Agriculture Service Center by close of business on Aug. 1. Elections will take place this fall.

While county committees do not approve or deny farm ownership or operating loans, they make decisions on disaster and conservation programs, emergency programs, commodity price support loan programs, and other agricultural issues. Members serve three-year terms.

The Farm Service Agency will mail ballots to eligible voters beginning Monday, Nov. 3. Ballots are due back to the local county office either via mail or in person by Monday, Dec. 1. Newly elected committee members and alternates will take office Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015.
