CAC Election Ballots Due October 25

  • Sep 25, 2019

Ballots for the annual California Avocado Commission (CAC) Election were mailed to all producers and handlers of record on September 23, 2019. Ballots must be postmarked by October 25, 2019 and sent in the postage paid envelope provided.

The elections will be held for one producer member seat and one producer alternate seat in each of the five CAC districts, as well as one handler member seat and one handler alternate seat.

Please note that the 2019 General Election ballots have a new format. Voters will cast their vote by ranking candidates in order of their preference (1st choice, 2nd choice, etc). The candidate receiving the highest number of first choice votes will be offered their choice of available seats. The candidate receiving the highest combined total of first and second choice votes will be offered the second available seat.

A summary of open seats and the complete election schedule can be found online.
