CAC General Election Ballots Due October 26
The California Avocado Commission (CAC) General Election is currently underway. Elections are being held for one producer member seat in each of the five CAC districts, as well as one handler member seat.
Ballots were mailed to all producers and handlers of record on September 25. All ballots must be postmarked by October 26, 2020 to meet the election deadline. Ballots should be sent in the postage paid envelope provided.
As they did in 2019, voters will cast their vote by ranking candidates in order of preference (first choice, second choice, etc.). The candidate who receives the highest number of first choice votes will be offered their choice of available seats.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture will announce the election results to the CAC Board and seat new board members on November 19.
